Hi There

I've just found two ancestors who according to Family Search are buried at Whitchurch Cemetery, Glamorgan, Wales and am hoping someone can help with burial details and headstone photo's. Am happy to do lookups myself but have looked and looked for a cemetery database and can't find one.

Their names are:

JAMES George Herbert b.1878 & d.1888 Cardiff
JAMES Gertrude Elizabeth b.1874 Monmouth d.1898 Cardiff

Am hoping the rest of their family are buried there also but have been told that they may be at Pant Cemetery which is close to Merthyr Tydfil but have also been unable to find a database for this cemetery.

Appreciate any help you can give ;-)

Kind Regards

Thanks Ann

It's getting late here so will send you a PM tomorrow. Am so glad I posted this request as looking for my James family has been like looking for a needle in a haystack at times.

My gg grandfather was station master at Taffs Well and he and his family lived near the Walnut Tree Bridge. Will fill you in on rest tomorrow......

Kind Regards
