GILWERN. Death of Two Old Inhabitants.— Gilwern has lost two of its old inhabitants during the past few days. Mrs Rees Jones, of Duffryn Mawr, passed away on Friday, June 20th, at the age 86. Although she had been ailing for some time her death was rather unexpected. Mr and Mrs Rees Jones were faithful servants of the Crawshays of Tymawr for many years. Mrs Jones's body was buried at Llanelly Church with that of her husband, whom she survived six years. The officiating clergy were the Rector (Rev. E. A. T. Roberts) and the Rev. G. Roberts (Vicar of Rhayader and late rector of Llanelly).—Mr J. Jones, greengrocer, of the Bottom Shop, Gil wern. died on Saturday lAAt, at the age of GfJ, I his familiar figure will be missed by many. The funeral takes place at Llau- gynidr. War Memorial.—On Monday, June 23rd, a meeting was held in the Church Schoolroom to consider the form of a memorial in the Parish Church, to the men who died in the service of their I country from this parish. The Rector, I who presided, said that at the Easter I Vestry it was proposed to place in the Parish Church a Stained Glass window I with the names of the fallen inscribed in a and that the window should | bo placed in the frame faeinj the main entrance. Mr D. G. Harris supported this proposal, adding th t. had the men not fallen in the war, most probably they would have been buried in due coarse in the churchyard and monuments erected to their respective memories and what wis jvove fitting that, having died for their country and lying in some foreign land, their countrymen who did not suffer the horrors of war should erect a memorial in the church which would commemorate for ever their sacrifice ? Mr W. Williams, in similar strain, also supported the motion which was carried unanimously. Collectors were then appointed. The Rector stated that f25 out of the £100 required had already been promised.
