Debbie took a phone call from Keith Griffith’s of Cefn Coed Memorials this morning with some wonderful news. We’d visited his office opposite Pant cemetery last Saturday on the off chance to see what would be involved in have her Nana Jemima’s grave marked with a proper headstone (see previous post).
Quite unexpectedly she found out that she was buried with her first husband (& Debbie’s Grandfather) William Edgar Lewis Davies. William died young suffering from wounds received (mustard gas poisoning) the First World War.
Obviously this was very moving news so on Debbie’s behalf I phoned Keith back to say we’d like to proceed with her purchase of grave rights and for a headstone to remember them both to be erected with the inscription as below.
TOO DEARLY LOVED TO BE FORGOTTEN
1895 – 1926
1897 – 1980
We have to get a statutory declaration form counter-signed by a solicitor in order to proceed, but fingers crossed it won’t be long until they can be remembered as they both deserve.
