Nonconformist Burials in the Begelly & St Issells area - databases by Jon Mein
St Issells Burial Board Register of Burials 1862-1922.
Pembrokeshire Record Office catalogue HSPC/18/3. There is also a plan of the yard dated 1893, HSPC/18/104
The register lists:
- Deceased's name; Occupation/status; Age at death; Residence at death; Occasionally details of death (such as cause, place if different from residence etc); Date of burial; Name of minister conducting service (can be used to trace possible religious affiliations of deceased)
All burials are (confusingly) at the St Issells parish churchyard but cover not only the church but members of the following chapels:
- Hebron - Baptists; Bethany - Calvinistic ; Bethel/Thomas Memorial - Congregationalist; Saundersfoot - Wesleyan; Kingsmoor - Primitive
The above data was contributed by Jon Mein who further states; "about 40% of the 1008 entries in the register are burials for non-conformists"
*What is the Welsh name for St Issells? (the NLW publications PRW and NRW disagree).
"It appears that 'Parish Registers of Wales' has followed the form found in Elwyn Davies, 'Rhestr o Enwau Lleoedd/A Gazetteer of Welsh Place-names (Caerdydd, 1967). The database 'Capeli Cymru' on which 'Nonconformist Registers of Wales' is based has obviously used Melville Richards, 'Welsh Administrative and Territorial Units' (Cardiff, 1969).In an annotated copy of Dr Elwyn Davies's work kept here among his papers, the form Llanusullt (St Issels) is found for the parish and church at map reference 22/1305 and the source E. Llwyd Williams, 'Crwydro Sir Benfro' is quoted. Dr Davies has St Issels, gw. Llanusullt and St Issells gw. Saint Ishel." (NLW, Feb 2002)
