In the 1920s, Arthur Peterson and his son Virgil started a building firm in Cwmbran. Eventually they took on funeral direction, this branch eventually separating from the building side. Today, the funeral business is flourishing.

A version of Croesyceiliog I have not seen before, "Groes-y-Ceiliog". The name derives from "croes", a crossing, and "ceiliog", a cockerel. An initial letter C can mutate in Welsh to G depending on grammatical context.

I was quite pleased with it. The family have "taken care of" a lot of my family members; I knew they had been builders, but I can't remember that myself.
