Nannerch Churchyard
« on: Monday 09 May 16 14:52 BST (UK) »
I have just found a funeral notice for my gr/gr/grandfather William Jones who died August 21st 1910 age 83.
It mentions that he was buried at Nannerch Churchyard, is there anyone who lives in the area who would be willing to have a wander around and see if they can locate his grave and possibly take a photo.

Any help would be much appreciated

I googled "Nannerch Monumental Inscriptions" and came across a pay to view/contribute site.

When searching burying locations remember that many burials do not carry a headstone/marker.The record only exists with the paper records of the church/chapel with which they are associated.

Thanks for your reply,
 I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is a headstone as the family weren't too badly off.

I was passing through Nannerch and visited the Churchyard. You did not say whether he died first or not. The old churchyard has a long narrow extension which started during the 1st World War, but he was not there.
Typical Churchyard with no obvious continuity of headstones, so it meant checking most of the Churchyard. I could not find his headstone. There are a few Jones's and there were very few Edwardian headstones.
Thinking that he may have been buried with his wife or other family member, I rechecked the Jones headstones, and could not find his name at all.
Most of the headstones are limestone with algae and lichens and some very difficult to read.
Sorry to disappoint you.
