Ronald Fairclough Fairclough, Ronald, 15th March 1945, Royal Air Force (VR), 207 Squadron,  191841, Pilot Officer (Flt Engr.), Grandson of Mary Ann Mundy, of Panteg, Pontypool, TREVETHIN (ST. CADOC) CHURCHYARD, Plot 2. Row 7. Grave 11.

Note... Ronald Fairclough is the reason why I set up this web site. It took quite a number of hours over two days to find Ronald's grave as he is buried in a family grave that has become very dilapidated and damaged with time. Looking down at his grave I thought to myself, at the going down of the sun and in the morning, whose going to remember you?!!
