He theorised that when the last keeper died the book could have been thrown

He was also sure such a book wouldn't have ben kept at the chapel itself for

Does anyone know if there is a comprehensive (or at least reasonably
full) list of Non-Conformist burial grounds in Pembrokeshire with the
dates that they were in use? If such a list exists is there an index
Taking the question a stage further, it's probably worth noting that there
was no statutory obligation on most nonconformist congregations to maintain
any registers at all. For a lot of burial grounds in the early days it
should not automatically be assumed that a register of burials ever
existed - let alone that it will have survived.
