Headmasters of Cynlais Primary School, Ystradgynlais

We are attempting to list the Headmasters of Cynlais primary school. At present we can say:-

EVAN REES Evan Rees passed away in May 1918, and in his obituary is described as having "joined the staff at the Cynlais School Ystradgynlais, where he eventually became headmaster, afterwards taking up duties at the Pantycwrt School Abercrave, where he left for North Wales". He was sixty when he died, so the period in which he was headmaster of Cynlais School cannot yet be ascertained. Read more about Evan Rees.
