Two interesting but poignant stories

Coffin of 9 month old child

Two interesting but poignant stories:-
1. The ‘accidental’ discovery at Gloucester Cathedral of the burial vault of the Hyett family dating from the 17th & 18th centuries. Amongst others this contains the remains of a 19 month old child. Link  http://www.bbc.co.uk/ne…/uk-england-gloucestershire-32914568

Price headstone
2. An 1890’s grave at Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw. Here lie two young children of the notable Saron minister J. W. Price & his wife.

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. 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
