A meeting is to be held on Monday 16th May at 7.30pm in the community hall, regarding the future of Upper Chapel Church. Please come along.
A touching memorial for soldiers who died during World War 1 stands within Upper Chapel Churchyard. An important document has been drawn up by Mr Vivian Parry detailing the lives of many local soldiers who fought during the Great War. There are stories and records featuring familiar farms and surnames from Merthyr Cynog parish, alongside articles from the local press of the time and invaluable accounts from living memory. You can view Vivian Parry’s research here.
