Old Road cemetery, felinfoel, llanelli burials
« on: Thursday 04 February 10 23:17 GMT (UK) »
Hello
Does anyone have any information about Old Road Cemetery, in Felinfoel ?
It's a very old non conformist burial site. I am looking for my ancestors- the Walters family. In particular  Sarah and John Walters who died around 1880's 1890's. I have looked for any Walters graves in  Box Cemetery, but there are none ! The Walters were farmers in that area and had many farms around the 1850's, yet there seems to be no trace of any of them.
Is there a list of burials in Old Rd anywhere?
kind regards

Hi Hobbyhorse

Old Road cemetery is just off Old Road in Llanelli, and it has been in a pretty poor state of upkeep.

However, I'm afraid it isn't in Felinfoel, which is a village/area of the town and is a couple of miles northish of Llanelli.

There are a couple of burial grounds in Felinfoel itself: one is behind Adulam Chapel and another is at Holy Trinity.

Is this helpful?

Hello
Thanks for your reply. I have been to the other 2 cemeteries you mentioned, but couldn't find any Walters Graves. I was told that Old Road would be a possibility, if there is some way of finding out who is burried there !
kind regards

Hi hobbyhorse, I see this is a link from last yr but hopefully u will see this msg. My grandparents were from felinfoel, Thomas and Rebecca Walters. I believe there are 4 walters in total each sharing the same grave in felinfoel. I believe there is an evan walters which may have been my great grandfather and I think the fourth may have been Margaret walters but dont quote me on that.

Hello

Haven't been on this site for a while, so apologies for the very late response. Which graveyard in Felinfoel is this grave, please. Is it the church graveyard itself or one of the others.

many thanks
