Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church

Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church

In the churchyard of the Holy Trinity Church in Bryngwran on Anglesey there are several casualties of the world wars mentioned on graves, and some are actually buried there. I cannot say for definite that this is the full list, but I did have a good look.

Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church, Bertie Edwards died 9th July 1917 aged 21

Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church, William Albert (Bertie) Edwards died 9th July 1917 aged 21.

On gravestone with maternal grandparents. Not on the Bryngwran war memorial, he was born in Lancashire. Bertie was on the destroyer H.M.S. Vanguard, which had fought in the Battle of Jutland without loss. What actually destroyed the ship was a fluke accident when she was anchored off Scapa Flow in Scotland, when some outdated cordite was probably ignited by the boilers, causing several explosions sinking the ship quickly with the loss of 804 souls.

Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church, John Evelyn Pritchard died in 1942 aged 20

John Evelyn Pritchard died in 1942 aged 20. He is remembered on his parents grave.

John was a Signalman on the Hunt Class Destroyer H.M.S. Penylan, which had been assigned to escort a convoy at the beginning of December 1942. South of Start Point in Devon she was attacked and sunk by E-Boat S115. Thank God that 117 of the crew were saved, but 38 perished, including Bertie.

Bryngwran, Holy Trinity Church, William Parry died in 1946 aged 43

William Parry died at home on May 17th 1946 aged 43. He had been a driver with the Royal Army Service Corp, and judging by his date of death had returned home injured or sick and subsequently died. William is buried with his parents.

Bryngwran, WWI Casualty, Owen Roberts from Canada died in France in 1917 aged 55

Owen Roberts was killed in France on the 15th November 1917 aged 55. Owen had been a private in the Canadian Infantry, but evidently - as he is remembered on his brothers grave - he must hail from this area and had emigrated to Canada.
