Llangwm is Conwy county’s most southern parish, with the communities of Dinmael, Maerdy, Tŷ Nant, Glan-yr-afon and Gellioedd — as well as the village of Llangwm itself — part of it.
It is a largely agricultural area today, as was the case to an even larger extent a century ago. The population of the parish was 742 accoring to the 1911 census.
17 of Llangwm’s farmers, poets, musicians, workers and gentry were lost in WW1; 13 of these were unmarried, 2 married (one of these a father), 2 unknown, and all but 3 were Welsh-speakers.
