Ancestry is showing a match for your names and 1837 birth date for a birth in Millbrook, Bedfordshire. This seems a bit far out for what you have posted, but thought I'd mention it.

Nearest small confectionary shops are the one on Beach Road next to Hackers Tyres and facing the George V playing field that has a football field on it. The other was on the road to the Pier and was run for years by Tommy Jones former manager of Bangor City football club.
If there is a headstone on the grave I can take a photo of it. I live quite close.

Penrhyn Castle is now run by the National Trust and the staff there are very helpful. You could try ringing them.
If John remained in the area till he died it's possible he may be buried in Llandegai churchyard which has a few members of Penrhyn staff buried there.

I know the family that lived on Cae Ysgubor Wen but not the Cilmelyn farm. I'll ask the family I know when I see them. The hospital was built directly on top of Cae Ysgubor and I thought the farmhouse and a couple of fields of Cilmelin still survived on the Easterly side of the hospital

There are two graveyards in or near Llanllechid. The older one is Gatehouse Calvanistic chapel cemetary North West heading out of the village. The newer one is Coetmor cemetary between Groeslon and the A5.
A bit further afield are the overgrown and abandoned Tanysgafell at the south end of Tregarth and St. Mary's in Tregarth. Also I have come across a couple of Llanllechid residents in the St. Tegai Llandygai village graveyard on the way into Bangor. There is also St. Cedol's, Pentir
I'll find the graveyard names and add to this post ... ok its updated
