Mynwenta ym Mhant / Tomb Reading in Pant

Earlier today four members of Friends of Saron attended this event held at Pant Cemetery. Despite the poor weather Sion ap Glyn from Canolfan Soar was able to us help us to learn a little more about our heritage.

We discovered, amongst other things, that Pant Cemetery was opened in 1849, originally for the victims of cholera as the existing parish cemetery around St John’s Church, Dowlais no longer had room for burials. It is hoped that Friends of Saron will be able to work with Conalfan Soar in the future to share the knowledge and experience which we have gained from our involvement in the Saron Graveyard Project.

Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
