Llanddewi Brefi Cemetery war memorial receives a funding boost from War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme

Llanddewi Brefi Cemetery War Memorial will benefit from a grant of £930 from War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme supported by the First World War Memorials Programme.

Funding of £4,333 has also been awarded under Cadw’s Grants for War Memorials Scheme, which provides funding to support the conservation and repair of War Memorials in Wales, and is linked to the Welsh Government’s Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 programme.

The money will enable Llanddewi Brefi Community Council to commission restoration and repair of the War Memorial, conserving the monument, plinth and surrounding obelisks. The work will include removal of the algae and lichens by low pressure, high temperature steam cleaning, and consolidation of the deteriorated sky faces of the sculpture. Silicone mastic will also be removed and replaced with Lime based mortar to keep out excess moisture from the core of the monument, and damaged lettering to the polished granite pedestal will be cleaned and re-gilded.

Those involved in the project are Llanddewi Brefi Community Council and Elliott Ryder Conservation.

Frances Moreton, Director, War Memorials Trust said, “War memorials are a tangible
connection to our shared past creating a link between the fallen and today. It is vital we ensure all our war memorials are in the best possible condition for their age and the charity is delighted to support this project. The centenary of World War I is a wonderful opportunity for local communities across the country to protect and conserve their war memorials. If anyone knows of any other war memorials in need of help please contact us.”

Llanddewi Brefi Community Council maintains and manages the village Cemetery, which was established in 1894 to provide additional burial space for the church and chapels.

The War memorial, dedicated in 1921, is listed on the Imperial War Memorial Register as “A figure of a soldier at ease on a pedestal, with a dedicatory inscription in gold lettering”, and was made by local Stonemason / Carver E.J.Williams from Llanybydder.

Elliott Ryder Conservation, who are based in Tregaron but work throughout the UK, are one of only thirteen practices in the UK and the only one in Wales accredited by the Institute of Conservation to work on stone and metal War Memorials. That is those projects receiving funding from national conservation bodies and the War Memorials Trust. ERC have been proud to work on eight war memorials, large and small around Wales and further afield over the past year, as part of the UK Government’s Centenary Fund.

War Memorials Trust is an independent registered charity. Established in 1997 due to concerns about neglect and vandalism it works to protect and conserve war memorials. It provides advice, information and administers grants schemes that assist the repair and conservation of war memorials across the UK. As a charity the Trust relies on voluntary contributions to undertake its work. Supporters include annual and life members, donors, charitable trusts and corporate contributors. warmemorials.org

War Memorials Trust administers a number of grant programmes supporting war memorials across the UK. Further information on the funding available can be found at www.warmemorials.org/grants. Examples of projects previously supported, which can be searched by county and country, can be found at www.warmemorials.org/search-grants.
