Glamorgan FHS helps with chapel memorial

Glamorgan Family History Society has provided the names of those commemorated on 34 stones at Ainon Chapel, Tonyrefail, which were recently destroyed by contractors using a mechanical digger in order to make a car park and playground plot nearby more attractive for sale, for owners Tonyrefail Workmen's Club.

A new memorial will be unveiled at Trane Cemetery to commemorate those listed - the full story is at www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/2012/04/06/memorial-will-replace-graves-91466-30703334/ and the details of the original destruction at www.walesonline.co.uk/news/south-wales-news/pontypridd-llantrisant/2011/08/11/anger-as-gravestones-smashed-by-digger-91466-29207675/
