The Friends of Cathays Cemetery are inviting people to their annual lecture at the Julian Hodge Lecture Theatre in Colum Road.
The group is working alongside the Cardiff University School of History, Archaeology and Religion to put on this year’s lecture, which will be given by the managing director of Mossfords monumental masons, Simon Morgan, on November 13.
The talk, titled “Who put the stones over the bones – a look at the early memorial masonry in Cathays Cemetery”, will use Mr Morgan’s firm’s 190 year history and its long association with Cathays Cemetery to talk about the changing style of memorials and their inscriptions in Cathays.
He will also talk about how the memorials in Cathays and other cemeteries have reflected moods and fashions throughout history, and how Cardiff’s history since the middle of the 19th century can be traced in Cathays by looking at these patterns.
The talk will begin at 7pm on Tuesday November 13 in the Julian Hodge Lecture Theatre on Colum Road. Entry will cost £2.50.
