Here are a series of maps which seek to visualise the patterns of distribution in the collection of 500+ First World War memorials which are (or were) in Welsh chapels.

Green – Roll of Honour only
Red – Memorial to dead
Black – Both Roll of Honour and Memorial to dead

The map contains information on memorials in over 500 chapels
This second map shows WW1 Memorials in Welsh chapels that are Stained Glass or include Photographs
Orange – Stained Glass Window
