Ainon Chapel memorial unveiled

A new memorial has been unveiled at Ainon Chapel grounds to replace the 40 headstones knocked down during redevelopment last year in a memorial garden owned by Tonyrefail Working Men's Club, causing immense upset to many of those whose relatives had been buried within the grounds. The new memorial, funded by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, has been produced with help from Glamorgan Family History Society, and also includes many additional names of those buried in the grounds with no headstone.
