Kathleen Powell - 1920s
The lack of any records from the time that Craig-y-nos was a childrens TB sanatorium remains a source of much regret.
Today I received the following email from Janet Tayler in Worcester:
"I'm so disappointed to find out there are no records of patients at Craig y nos. My great aunt, Kathleen Powell, from Cwmgwrach, died there during the 1920s. My grandfather was only young at the time and he hasn't spoken much about his sister. I can't even find a record of her death. If I find anything else out from the only other surviving sister sister, or if there are any photos, I will contact you. ( My grandfather is nearly 90 and his sister is 88) Kathleen caught TB from visiting a friend who had it.
I've spent many happy hours walking round "Madam Patti's" - the country park, and I've taken my own children there.
Good luck with the book."
