Resting in peace?

John James Headstone

John James died in Troedyrhiw over 100 years ago. His epitaph shows that he expected to be left to lie in peace in Saron Graveyard. “THIS IS MY REST FOR EVER: HERE WILL I DWELL; FOR I HAVE DESIRED IT.” We hope that Mr James’ wishes and those of up to 2,000 other souls will be respected. What do you think?


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
