David John Davies: Following the trail.
David John Davies: Cause of death.
I had forgotten about the request I made, but this morning I received a surprise email from Find A Grave letting me know that a David Wilson-Pinkney had discovered the grave and photographed it. Thank you!
Some of the letters are missing but I was able to piece together the wording. The inscription reads as follows:
beloved husband of Edith Davies,
who departed this life Feb 4 1931, Aged 52 years.
Home at last, thy labour done.
There is no gravestone of his wife, Julia Edith Davies because she married some years later and emigrated to the United States. I write about her little adventure here. I have yet to find her gravestone but it is somewhere in Pennsylvania.
I feel a sense of completion having now transcribed his gravestone as well as knowing the cause of death.
The only thing left to say is that he is buried in Penrhys Cemetery, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales at plot number D20, and burial number 434.
