G Mountjoy on the Ystradgynlais War Memorial has been unidentified, as no clear match has been obvious.

THERE ARE THREE G MOUNTJOY FALLEN LISTED on the CWGC Site but the fallen below had connections to Abercrave and we have filed his details with the possibility that we have the correct entry:
The others being: George MOUNTJOY King's Rifle Corps Service no 10345 died 14/09/1913
And George Henry MOUNTJOY 1st/5th Welsh Regiment Service no 2554 died 23/10/1915

The information on G Mountjoy has been compiled from a number of sources, including the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, from the South Wales Voice newspaper, and the Parish Burial Register (courtesy of the Swansea Archives).
