Aberdare cemeteries
« on: Monday 09 October 06 16:40 BST (UK) »
I have just received the death cert for Christiana Davies, who died on 1st February 1863. The address given was 287 Cardiff Road, Aberdare.

Knowing that the municipal cemetery in Aberdare opened in October 1860,  I phoned the cemeteries dept in Aberdare hoping to find the location, and names of others in the grave.

No joy. Apparently there were very few burials in the municipal cemetery in the early 1860s, as people were buried in existing graves in churchyards.

This brings me to my question:
with all indications showing that the family were non-conformists, (the daughter married at Carmel Chapel, Aberdare in 1852; and I think I have a marriage for Christiana in 1840, in Tabernacle Independent, Aberdare), where is it likely that Christiana would have been buried?
