  1. A very fine set of shots, Graham, with a slightly cleaner-edged, modern feel, presumably due to the fairly recent date of the cemetery. I was intrigued with the steam loco, a very good representation of a BR standard class five…perhaps an old driver?

    • Thanks, Iain. I have to say that I much prefer the atmosphere in older cemeteries, but, as you say, this has a different feel for a change. I should have paid more attention to the inscription, but I’m afraid I instinctively only homed in on the detail of the depiction of the loco!

  2. Hello Graham and Iain .
    I came across your beautiful photos by accident. And what a fortuitous one!
    There it is, my father’s locomotive engine. I’m so pleased.
    My father, Owen Richard Parry (Now, to all who knew him) was a life long admirer of the steam engine. From childhood, everything was steam. He worked in Bangor shed during the mid forties and early fifties. As a cleaner and knocker upper initially, working his way up to pass fireman.

    He was forced to leave for more lucrative work, upon marriage, and consequently, four daughters.
    However, all things steam remained a passion for the rest of his life. He was a friend of Norman Kneal, a local train photographer. And my sisters and I were brought up with railwayana as a norm!
    My father suffered ill health from his thirties, cardiac in the main and died aged just sixty.
    Gareth Davies, stonemason, from Pentre Berw is responsible for the engraving. I left the choice of engine up to him. (No Southerns of course)
    Best wishes.
    Hilary.

    • Hi Hilary

      I am very glad that you happened to find my photos and that you liked them.

      Many thanks for sharing your personal background story behind the wonderfully unique piece of memorial artwork. It does indeed sound like a very fitting tribute to your father.

      With best wishes,
      Graham.
