Memorial Poppy

On July 1st 2016, the morning of the 100th anniversary of the start of the battle of the Somme on July 1st 1916, a single red poppy opened its flower on the family vault of the Lloyds of Bronwydd


The sole heir to the Bronwydd estate, Marteine Lloyd, was killed in action during the battle.


In Flanders fields the poppies blow


Between the crosses, row on row,


That mark our place; and in the sky


The larks, still bravely singing, fly


Scarce heard amid the guns below.
