The names in this database have come from the various war memorials in and around Cwmbran and in due course and with further research more names will added that have no memorial.

Any help in adding to these names or photographs and information about the casualties is very welcome.

The lists under the letters below gives the Surname, Christian names, Age, Date of Death, Service, Number, Rank, Awards (in bold text), Next of Kin, where buried or where listed on a memorial, grave number or plaque number and where else listed on a local memorial ie. school.

All the information is as known and will not be complete and I would welcome further information about any of these persons.

If any information or photographs are used elsewhere from this web site or from my other web sites other than family membes of the casualties, but again if family members use them on other web sites, I would be grateful that you would recognise the sourceof the information that you found them on such as Cwmbran's War Dead by Shaun McGuire. I have come across some people claiming my photographs as a resultof their own research.
