I have been doing a family history search for sometime. I have found a copy of my great grand parents Benjamin Lloyd and Anne Hughs' marriage certificate. It was issued on March 1st,1879. On the license, it is hand written that the marriage was performed at the Carmel Chapel, Aberdare, in the District of Merthyr Tydfil, in the counties of Glamorgan & Brecon. My question is, does this chapel still exist? I am unable to locate any information in regards to it. I am hoping that I may be able to locate family that may still live in the area and help fill in answers to our family heritage. Any information that anyone may have would be greatly appreciated. I know that my Great Great Grandfather was a Mr. William Lloyd From Mardy Aberdare and was a shoemaker. My other great great grandfather was Mr. David Hughs also from Mardy. He was a coal miner.
