INTRODUCTION

This site contains a list of some of the men and women, who died during WW1, that had an association with Risca or Pontymister, whether born, lived, died or buried there.
I am looking to build a site detailing, as a minimum, all their military details along with any images, stories of interest etc.

There are a number of names for which I cannot find any further information.These are listed below.
