Varteg Road Cemetery, Blaenavon, Pontypool 5 July 2014
At a time when 16 year olds today worry about the latest computer game and GCSEs, poor Willie was working in dangerous conditions at the blast furnaces of the local ironworks.
The cemetery, on the mountain on the outskirts of Blaenavon, was opened in the early 20th Century and today is in two halves, the original and a newish extension with plenty of burial space.
