Members of the congregation of a Welsh church are looking for relatives of two former parishioners who served in the First World War.

Llanmerewig Church in Powys is hoping to trace family members to attend a service to unveil a new memorial that commemorates the pair.

Private Thomas Clement Evans served with the South Wales Borderers and died aged 35 on 14 February 1919. He was the husband of Mary Ann Evans, of Brook Cottage, Llanmerewig.

John Albert Edward Parry died on 9 September 2020. He was a member of the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry during the war.
