    I was driving through the village of Foel, in Powys (Montgomeryshire, pre-1974), Wales, and spotted this marble tablet in the porch of the chapel. I'm guessing that the tablet was brought out and placed in the porch when the Ebenezer Chapel closed its doors, some time after 2010.

    Does the inscription give his cause of death?

    The Inscription;
    "who fell in battle in the Netherlands"
    "Their deeds will not die"

    I have lost count how many times I have passed through Foel on journeys to North Wales.
    Thank you for posting the photographs
