Jones Photographs 2

These two contributed by Ben Jones, May 2004

This is the headstone of the grave at Aberduar Chapel cemetery, Llanybydder.
The inscriptions are as below, I assume that that of Rees Jones, the son, who died in Salonika in WWI is a memorial only, I also wonder about the father's entry who died in Cwmgors, Llangiwg.

" Er cof am Elizabeth gwraig Rees Jones Ivy Bush, Glanduar. Bu farw Rhagfyr 14eg 1887 yn 36 oed.

Gwyliwch am hynn am na wyddoch na'r dydd na'r awr y daw mab y dyn."

"Hefyd am y dywededig Rees Jones, bu farw Mai 15ed, 1920 yn 72 oed."

"Hefyd ei mab Rees Jones. Bu farw yn Salonika, Hydref 6ed 1918 yn 37 oed."
