Hi Everyone ,
I am researching various names of people who lived in the Ynysangharad area of Ponty between 1835 and 1870 ( so before Glyntaff Cemetery). Some were Church of England and some were non-conformists. Can anyone tell me where the burial grounds were and is any are still there ?
Any help will be appreciated,

Thanks in advance

According the the GenUKI page for Pontypridd, there were burial grounds at:
Sardis Congregational Church
Capel Rhondda Baptist Church

St Catherine's was the first Anglican church, and that commenced building in 1866.
The nearest was St Mary's, Glyntaff.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)
