Research continues to be made by Rhiannon into the men from Old Colwyn who died during the First World War and 20 names have come to Light so far who are absent from our Memorial. It is understood that it is likely to be costly to have their names engraved on it. One suggestion is that a Memorial Service could be held where a plaque honouring them would be dedicated to their memory to be subsequently displayed in Saint John's Church in this, the hundredth anniversary, together with suitable military representation and possibly our Côr Meibion Colwyn. Apart from local subscriptions, requests to the British Legion and similar organizations for funding might be made.
