Welshampton is a small village located in rural Shropshire, England, near to the town of Ellesmere, and close to the border with Wales.

The village war memorial, taking the form of a Celtic Cross, was erected at St Michael & All Angels Church in 1920. The memorial underwent a complete restoration and cleaning in 2010. The front panel on the plinth commemorates the death of Charles Angelo Moody, the son of the Rev. Henry Moody, the vicar of Welshampton, who was killed in Belgium in 1917. Also commemorated is his twin brother, Henry Michael Moody, who was also killed on flying duty in 1931.
