Buried Away from HomeEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
At Gellionnen chapel there are nearly 250 gravestones. An analysis of the inscriptions on the gravestones show that an average of three people named on each headstone. Of the nearly 750 people commemorated on the gravestones 72 were from parishes other than Llangyfelach where Gellionnen is located. The neighboring parishes accounted for more than half of those nonresidents.
This illustrates that researchers should consider the possibility that the person being searched for may have been buried in a parish other than where they lived. Some could have been living in a different county. Maybe the search for a burial should be be expanded if it has not been found.
