Llandrillo yn Edeirnion

The Llandrillo War Memorial commemorates those men and women of the area who died during World War I and World War II. The memorial takes the form of a carved stone Celtic Cross and stands outside Y Ganolfan.

Llandrillo yn Edeirnion is a small rural village, ecclesiastical parish and community in the Edeirnion area of Denbighshire, to the south-west of the town of Corwen. Until 1974 the area was part of historic Merionethshire and between 1974 and 1996 part of the county of Clwyd.
