St Margaret’s War Memorial Tower

The bulk of the war memorials for the Roath parish are housed in neighboring St Edwards church on Blenheim Road.   The tower in St Margaret’s Church is however a dedicated war memorial in itself.  The roll of honour has been carved into a pillar of the tower that was completed after the Great War.
