Abercastle, Mathry, Pembrokeshire. Cemetery?
« on: Wednesday 29 March 17 21:48 BST (UK) »
My Gt Gt Grandfather died in Abercastle on the Pembrokeshire coast near Mathry. Is there anyone in that area who could tell me where the cemetery for that hamlet is located. I know there is gravestone and it overlooks the sea but have no further information. Also is there or was there a church or chapel in Abercastle.
Thanks.

Abercastle does not have a graveyard. There is a graveyard at the Church in Mathry but you can't see the sea from it. I wonder if it is at the graveyard on the A487 just outside the place called Square and Compass. Its' on a hill overlooking the sea: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.9344125,-5.1398097,3a,75y,255.2h,55.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sWmrDVkJFzLznepiwIHqJUw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
