Time, decay. neglect and vandalism have all done their worst in Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw. Friends of Saron have been working hard to reverse or slow down some of these effects. We have also been making a record of all of the surviving graves. The image, which is from the CBA & RESCUE publication ‘How to record graveyards’, explains why this is so important.


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
