Members of Barry Town Council and a small contingency held a small socially distanced event on Wednesday to mark the unveiling of four plaques within Merthyr Dyfan Cemetery, Barry.
Within Merthyr Dyfan Cemetery each person has a story. Barry Town Council want to share with the residents of Barry just how many of the people buried in the cemetery effected and contributed to the history of Barry and in some case even internationally.
It is hoped that the four plaques which were unveiled will be the first of many. The plan is that those with stories will have them shared around the cemetery, close to their graves but on the plaques situated next to paths so that interested visitors will be able to read about their lives.
The plaques unveiled included;
