Thanks for taking the trouble to respond.
I will make the trip to Llanilar to see if I can find headstones. Would
anyone have access to monumental inscriptions' lists for St Hilary,
Llanilar and Carmel Calvinistic Methodist, Llanilar, I wonder?
Courtesy of the Western Mail, I know that John Mantle's body was
extricated from a mine at Ferndale following an accident. He died a week
later but I have not been able to find his burial in the Rhondda.
Thanks again for your help, John.

According to the National Burial Index for Ceredigion:-
1. Elizabeth Mantle, Burial: 12 April 1871, Age: 5 months at St Hilary,
2. Jane Mantle, Burial: 2 April 1921, Age: 84 at Carmel Calvinistic
3. Mary Charles, Burial: 5 March 1891, Age: 83 at St Hilary, Llanilar
There is no record John being buried at Llanilar. If there was a mining
accident they may not have recovered his body?
I hope this helps

Would anyone have access to a monumental inscriptions' list for the
Llanilar area near Aberystwyth?
John and Jane Mantle married there in 1870 and had a baby, Elizabeth,
who died in 1871. John Mantle later went to work in the Rhondda leaving
the family in Llanilar but he died in a mining accident in 1887. I'm
wondering if his body was brought back to the family home. His wife,
Jane Mantle, still lived at Llanilar in 1911 and died in Aberystwyth in
I'd like to know if any of those mentioned above are buried at Llanilar
as well as Jane's mother, Mary Charles, who lived in Llanilar in 1881
and died in early 1891.
