Early/mid C19 memorial of the Beynons of Weegwen (Llanddewi Aberarth) and Llaethliw (Henfynyw). The tomb to the S is of David Davies (1713-68), who rebuilt the church in the mid C18.
Mid C19 large railed enclosure, containing tombs of the Beynon family. Tall cast iron rails with alternate spike and arrowhead finials. Corner and strengthening posts with globular finials. Central over-arch to W, with vertical arrowheads and crowning globular finial.

Similar memorial adjoining, in memory of David Beynon of Weegwen (d.24 September 1808, aged 65). Slate slab with decorative incised work to edges. Next tomb with dressed stone side panels, carved corner rope-moulding and slate top with inscription to the memory of Jenkin Beynon of Llaethliw (d.12 February 1849, aged 72). Final tomb is similar in style and date, the sides with arched panels: stone slab top. Memorial to Mary, daughter of David Beynon (d.1811)
Immediately S of the enclosure is a chest tomb with brick sides and long slate slab top in memory of David Davies (d.1768, aged 55) with inscription: "The Building of a Meeting House and the rebuilding of this church will perpetuate his memory to future ages". Latin and Welsh inscriptions below: also later inscription of John Davies, son of the above (d. 17 April 1777). Good lettering.
Attractive railed enclosure, containing early/mid C19 tombs of high quality. The Davies memorial has excellent lettering and also is of obvious historical importance. Group value with church.
