age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them" 

The Newcastle Emlyn War Memorial History

Originally built on the back wall of the castle in 1923 to remember the fallen of the district who died in the First World War. Another tablet was added to remember the fallen of the Second World War. It was moved in 1985 to a site between Holy Trinity Church and the Courthouse. It made it far more convenient to hold services at the memorial now.

In Memory of the men of the town and local area that fell during the war 1914- 1918
