Hen Garmel Graveyard

 

This is a transcription by Gareth Hicks of the information on the headstones from  part of Hen Garmel graveyard from a copy document contributed by Rina Callingham. It is emphasised that this document is a very poor copy with parts of the edges missing - that copy was made from a further copy deposited at West Glamorgan Archive Service in Swansea.

The original author is not known, it is assumed that the data was recorded in 1992 since that year is shown on each page - and as some headstones are mentioned as being 'fallen' then before the occasion of these being moved and stacked against the walls.
It is not stated which part of the graveyard is involved but it is thought to be that area immediately above the site of the old chapel building, in other words the section that was cleared.

The spelling and original layout of the document has been maintained, questions marks have been inserted where it has not been possible to be certain what the original said -  together with the likely missing bits in square brackets.

Please also bear in mind that the headstones would have been difficult to read, perhaps quite worn, and there may therefore be errors in the original transcriptions.

There are eight pages of names which represent 16 rows of the graveyard

Some Welsh words used
merch=daughter; mab=son; tad=father; mam=mother; gwr=husband; gwraig/wraig=wife; blant=children; babu=baby
