The register containing the details of Ann Williams’s burial on December 25th 1842

If correct this would make Ann one of the World’s Oldest human beings ever recorded, being born in 1727, the year King George I died. Little is known of her at the moment and in time perhaps we shall find out more about this remarkable character who lived close to the banks of the River Towy. Her last resting place is not marked but is likely to be in the area first used for burials near the gate at the north end of the cemetery.
