Beddau rhyfel ym Mynwent Llandrindod

Mae 12 o feddau rhyfel yn y fynwent hon, ac mae arysgrifau coffa ar nifer o feddau eraill i aelodau'r teulu a fu farw yn y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf neu’r Ail Ryfel Byd. Gweler eu manylion isod.

Mae'r rhan fwyaf o'r beddau rhyfel yn rhan isaf y fynwent. Trowch i'r dde ar ôl mynd i mewn trwy'r porth ger Ffordd Ithon.

Mae'r brodyr Powell, yr oedd eu rhieni yn byw ym Mharc Montpellier, ymhlith y rhai a gladdwyd mewn beddau rhyfel yma. Gwasanaethodd y ddau fel milwyr cyffredin yn ystod y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf. Bu farw William Percival Wetherley Powell ym 1917, a’i frawd hŷn Arthur Clifford ym 1921.

Yn ystod y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf cafodd miloedd o ddynion Corfflu Meddygol Brenhinol y Fyddin eu lletya ar gyfer hyfforddiant yn Llandrindod, lle bu farw dau o'r dynion o salwch o fewn dau ddiwrnod i'w gilydd ym 1915. Roedd un o Glasgow, a'r llall o Wigan.

Daeth rhai o'r gwestai sba yn Llandrindod yn ysbytai yn ystod y rhyfel. Bu farw nifer o filwyr yno a chawsant eu claddu yn y fynwent.

Anaml y byddai cyrff milwyr a gafodd eu lladd dramor yn cael eu dychwelyd adref yn ystod y ddau Ryfel Byd. Mae rhai yn cael eu coffáu gydag arysgrifau byrion ar gerrig beddau’r teuluoedd.

Mae un o'r arysgrifau mwyaf ingol yma yn coffau’r tri brawd Hope, y buont i gyd farw mewn gwahanol wledydd yn y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf.

Mae'r ddau frawd Gough a fu farw yn y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf yn cael eu cofnodi ar garreg fedd arall. Cliciwch yma i weld ein tudalen gwe i gofio amdanynt.

Gyda diolch i Phillip Jones
