Finding a grave

Postby DocRock » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:05 am

Hi

I'm due to visit South Wales next month, doing the family tree trail, and I would like to try and find where my Great Great Grandfather is burried. His name was Hugh Morris Jones, and he died in 1920 at Blaenrhondda. I've already tried findagrave.com but with no luck so far, has anybody got any suggestions where to look?

Don't know if the following is your ancestor?
JONES, HUGH  MORRIS  
34  
GRO Reference: 1920  D Quarter in PONTYPRIDD  Volume 11A  Page 667

If so, the following might be helpful.

Not sure if that comes under East or West Glamorgan, but Swansea Archives, which covers West Glamorgan, (located alongside Swansea Central Library), has copies of most of the Parish registers in West Glamorgan. The staff are very helpful and could point you in the right direction.

NB East Glamorgan Archives are based in Cardiff.
