 BBC - North West Wales Arts - Hedd Wyn
The story of Hedd Wyn was brought to the world's attention by the 1992 Oscar-nominated film of his life.
Hedd Wyn is my Great Great Uncle and he died in World war one by the German Amry and he was born in 1887 and that was before world war one.
The purpose of the visit was to see Hedd Wyn's grave, and although I thought it would be a difficult task amongst the 1000 or so white gravestones, his was found with the aid of a bunch of daffodils that had been placed there.

Hedd Wyn (in Welsh "white peace"), was the pen-name of Ellis Humphrey Evans, a Merionethshire[?] shepherd-poet of World War I.

 heddwyn
His bardic name, "Hedd Wyn" (Perfect peace) was awarded at a local poetry festival held at the side of Llyn y Morynion where, it is said, a shaft of sunlight illuminated the face of the young poet.
Although during the time of agricultural depression he had, like many other farm lads, tried the life of a miner in South Wales, he soon decided that it was not for him and returned to the familiar hills of Merionethshire where he could concentrate on the poetry which was to win him such acclaim.
Hedd Wyn was one of the 31,000 soldiers who were casualties that day, but it is unclear whether he died before he reached the casualty clearing station at the Chateau, or whether, as indicated in ‘Soldiers died in the Great War’ he died later.
