The Saron Graveyard Project received a tremendous boost on Saturday when over 40 people attended the unveiling of a heritage plaque at the graveyard. Residents, councillors, representatives of Merthyr Heritage Trust and Dawn Bowden AM were among those who watched the unveiling which was performed by Dr Hefin Jones, Chair of the Trust. Before this David Collier of Friends of Saron had thanked everyone present for their interest and support and the Heritage Trust for recognising the historical importance of this place by commissioning the plaque. Dr Jones spoke about the ways in which chapels such as Saron, Troedyrhiw had contributed to the development of a distinct valleys culture and society. He also touched on the attitude that our forbears had to death and the importance that they attached to respectful burial.
