Varteg Road Cemetery, Blaenavon, Pontypool 5 July 2014
With the less robust safety regulations in those days, electrocution was probably much more common both in the home and the workplace; even in my childhood in the 1950s, I can remember electrical appliances being plugged in to ceiling light fittings, including electric irons?!
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.
