Cwmbach Male Choir is saddened to learn of the death of John Merriman, a faithful chorister and former Chairman and Vice Chairman of the choir.
John , on returning with his wife Jenny to live in Aberdare, rejoined the choir after a gap of many years, and loved not only the singing, but the friendship, social activities and tours.
Our thoughts go out to Jenny and their families. He was a true gentleman and will be fondly remembered by everyone connected to the Choir.
Johns' funeral will be held on Monday 19th June at 2.15pm at Llwydcoed Crematorium. Choristers please be at the Crematorium for 1.50pm.
