Varteg Road Cemetery, Blaenavon, Pontypool  5 July 2014
From the early 19th Century, many Irish families moved to the South Wales valleys seeking prosperity in the burgeoning coal and iron industries.
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.
