Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Colonel Richard Glyn gravesite Empty
PostSubject: Colonel Richard Glyn gravesite   Colonel Richard Glyn gravesite EmptyTue Jul 24, 2018 7:26 pm

I'm sure this may have been listed on the site however whilst reading Rattray's guidebook to the AZ battlefields it mentioned that Glyn is buried in Ewell however despite a google search and a flying visit to a (the?) Glyn's family cemetery in Ewell and a chat with the local historian I can find no factual evidence that he was buried in Ewell.

St Mary's is where a Glyn family has their cemetery going back to 17th century to present day, there is also a Glyn school in Epsom

Findagrave website couldn't produce a result either. Perhaps he is a lesser known member of the family.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Thanks 1879...is that in St Mary’s Ewell? I was directed to a wall full of plaques which I couldn’t see him on. Not sure how I missed this gravestone!

Hi Younghusband

Yes it is St Mary's Ewell. He is on the bottom plinth of the Cross.

Salute

I’ve laid a wreath many times over recent years at St.Marys Ewell on behalf of my regiment but never knew Glyn was buried there. Just round the corner so I will have a look when I get a moment.

Hi Younghusband
The grave is adjacent to the old tower in the Churchyard not the Church itself. I was there a couple of months ago and it is badly covered in ivy etc but still easily recognisable. Like you I couldn't find a plaque inside which mentions him. However, if you google 'the Glyns of Ewell' there is a wealth of material about the family collected by local historians.
Regards
