Discovering Welsh Graves

This text refers to more than 300 Welsh graves and discusses not so much about the graves themselves but about the people buried in them. It provides potted biographies of the individuals involved and offers some intriguing juxtapositions.
This new and unusual Pocket Guide refers to more than 300 Welsh graves of the famous and not so famous. They are grouped in convenient geographical areas using the current local government boundaries and there is guidance on how to find the graves themselves. The book is not so much about the graves themselves (although where they are particularly notable there are photographs and descriptions) but about the people buried in them. It thus provides potted biographies of the individuals involved and offers some intriguing juxtapositions. So we find the fairly respectable Cynan and Sir John Edward Lloyd buried close to the seriously eccentric John Evans (Bardd Cocos) at Menai Bridge, Joe Erskine close to Arwel Hughes at Thornhill, while Trealaw would be worth visiting to see the graves of Viscount Tonypandy, Tommy Farr, Lewis Jones and Kitchener Davies as well as that of Williams Evans, owner of the Corona pop factory.
