The names of the men in the area who fell during the First World War are inscribed on three faces of the pedestal, on its south, east and west sides. A white marble plaque at its base commemorates the men on a memorial until recently installed inside Eglwys Dewi Sant, Henllan but removed to its present location after the church fell into disrepair. The names of those who fell in the Second World War have been added to the east face of the pedestal.
