A dedicated group of people have been researching the War Memorials of Flintshire towns and villages. This is being coordinated by Eifion and Viv Williams on a completely voluntary basis and recorded on their website – www.flintshirewarmemorials.com.
They are concentrating on the names of men and women from the First World War listed on the village war memorials. Each name from the memorial is expanded to give any information gathered from official sources – such as birth records, census records, army records etc – together with any local anecdotal information provided by interviews or comments.
This is a huge task for the county as a whole but the entry for Treuddyn is now complete and the results can be found on their website here.
To navigate around the site click Enter, then select the Treuddyn box (or any other ‘green’ town or village), then click Continue – if you then click on any name on the war memorial picture a full write-up will appear showing all the research gathered to date.
You can help with the research – if you know any of the families mentioned and can provide more information please contact either Eifion or Viv Williams via the Flintshire War Memorials website or pass any comments to the Treuddyn Community Website and we will forward them on.
If either of the chapels or the church have access to any records which might give a fuller picture of these men it would be added to this history.
If you know any local people who don’t have access to computers but who are familiar with Treuddyn residents of the WWI era please pop round and ask them if they might have more information for this project. All information gratefully received.
At present nothing is known of the history of William Jones mentioned on the war memorial – if anyone has any leads on this person it would be especially welcome.
