achos is a word that we use  refer to a  church or chapel , (not necesarily anti establishment)
eg cyfeillion yr achos  translates as friends of the chapel
I suppose it comes from "achos Duw"  God's cause.

May the gaps in our churches be filled and may those who wait be filled with a fraction ( literally two thirds) of his excellent spirit.  May our brother rest in peace and we say "Hail the day when we can meet again"

His co-officers (deacons0 served as bearers and the choir sang hymns most suitable to the occasion.  His funeral sermon was preached at Horeb on Sunday evening 13 May , the large congregation there present was an indication was a sign of the respect that was felt towards   the kind, willing ,peaceful brother, who was being remembered.  In the same service, his grandson was accepted as a full member of the cause - the first of his grandsons to enlist under the Cross.  No one would have been happier to see this since he had pressed the matter for his consideration several times and had been given his promise before he died.  May God be a great help to his widow and children who have lost a very faithful spouse and a most  careful father.  May they continue to follow the paths of the deceased in the way they have already begun.

 His loss (death) is a great loss to the cause.  He was  generally loved and much respected by all.  He was buried the following Saturday at the old sacred cemetery at Mynyddbach. and sincere witness to his life and usefulness  was shown by a crowd of devout men who had come to pay him the last kindness.  The chapel was filled with a respectful crowd , a true representation of the prominent people of the cause of religion in the area.  The Revs R Thomas, Glandwr, G Griffiths, Pentre and R O Hughes, his minister, took part in the service.  Kind words were uttered of the departed and everyone testified that they were the truth and that j Rees' character really deserved them and more .  We also saw present the Revs W. EMlyn Jones, Morriston, and Hugh Davies (Calvinistic Methodist) Plasmarl

First part,( I am not a linguist but Welsh is my first language.)
The community of Plasmarl and Glynmawr were very surprised by the unexpected news of the death of the dear man, John Rees, Plasmarl.  He had not been in good health for a while but had spent all of the last Sabbath of his life in the chapel and he was preparing for the work on the morning of his death.  He was born in the  Clydach area and his family there were very useful with the cause. The children also had the privilege of serving God their Father.  Proof oif that is that Rees spent his life in the service of religion and was for many years a respected deacon.  He was a deacon since the beginning of the caue in Plasmarl and previous to that at Siloh, Glandwr.  He had held the the position of the eldest deacon at Hermon for a while.  His brother, Mr Benjamin Rees, Ki ng's Cross, London - the only brother now alive- is as everyone knows a very prominent and useful with the cause there
