If the cemetery is on 'Find a Grave' you may be able to work out by headstones listed were it may be. Cemetery headstones are usually nearest chapel/church are older. Link is to the Calvanistic church in Llanwrtyd. https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2193774/calvinistic-methodist-church-cemetery
Found St. Davids but it is not much help. You could sign in and put in a request https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2690767/st.-david's-churchyard

Looking on Google Maps it does not look that large a cemetry and well cared for. Is there a Rootschat member living locally who could visit, transcribe if necessary and photograph? It would take me well over an hour, or I would have volunteered.

The other week, before lock-down, I drove across to the church/graveyard. It was raining, as usual. These days my walking is not as good as it used to be. I looked at some stones from around the same period, one being a Price by the gate. Because of the weather and being exposed, there has been so much erosion that it was difficult to read the details. Also, Google Street View, did not show how uneven the graveyard is, with deep, wet grass, so I did not attempt to look around. There are many column type of stones, either square or round, so several deaths could be written on one. I was intending to return when the weather was better; but now that will not be for a while. From what I saw, there seemed no grid for grave numbers, without huge effort, there will be no chance of working it out. Tir Abad seem to be graves reserved for church people.

Thank you so much for taking the time to go to the churchyard for us.I think until the vicar actually finds the plot numbers I do not think we can find the family.Because the family all died within a short time of each other we think they are all in the same plot or grave. Enoch died 1913,Rebecca died 1916 and Hartley died 1917. Its so sad really.Thankyou.
