Llanishen is a quiet leafy suburb of Cardiff, South Wales, yet it has a history stretching back over 1,000 years to when it was nothing but a small village amid a wide area of fields and woodland. Llanishen Local History Society is a group of local residents who seek to remember and conserve all of the long history of this area for future generations.
The War Memorial Project is an initiative undertaken by Llanishen Local History Society to find out about the men from the village who fought and died in the Two World Wars. It also aims to find out more about the “American invasion” of the village prior to D-Day.
Like almost every part of Great Britain, Llanishen lost a significant number of men in both world wars and it is our intention, through finding out more about where our fallen served, to ensure that they are never forgotten.
