Church yard in or near Caersws
« on: Saturday 23 May 09 01:54 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the name of the the church in which my Grandparants are buried, I think it was just out side of Caersws, I remember going there in 1971 to visit the graves of Andrew and Hannah Myatt and their daughter Iris.
I would like to find out where it is as I want to find any burial information and inscripttions on the headstones. 
Also I remember my father taking me to a place nearby that they called daffodil hill as it was covered with wild daffodils, I cannot seem to find any mention of it in any publication of the area, was it just a local name?
Hope some can help

Hi mysubee, we have oldies from the area and ours were buried in the churchyard at Llanwnog, not in Caersws itself. Hope this might help.

Hi Skewy

Thank you for this information I followed your link and then used google earth to see where the church was in relation to where my grandparents lived, and it seems to fit with my memory of driving away from their house away from Caersws.  I will get intouch with Powys historical society and check if they have the burials recorded.

Thanks again
