Pictures of some other Gwenlan places.....

This is Vine Cottage, Abergavenny. William & Jennet Gwenlan were living here when their son, Edward died in WW1. His records can be found on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. He is the only Gwenlan recorded as dying in combat. Their family records are on the database. Vine Cottage is now the offices of a Haulage Company.
