Searching for Betsi Cadwalladr’s grave was problematic. Her father Dafydd Cadwalladr was a well known Methodist preacher. I found his grave in Llanycil church.
The church of Llanycil sits beside Llyn Tegid, Bala Lake, in the old county of Merionethshire, Wales. The Llanycil church is built on an ancient Celtic Christian site. The church was renowned as the destination for 15-year-old Mary Jones in 1800 when she walked 26 miles from Llanfihangel-y-Pennant to buy a bible from Rev Thomas Charles.
Dafydd Cadwalladr’s enigmatic headstone contains details of his daughter and it says:
A’I Ferch (and his daughter)
Elizabeth Davies, nyrs yn y Crimea (Nurse in the Crimea)
Bladdwn yn Llundain (Buried in London)
This was my first clue of the whereabouts of Betsi’s grave
