Brickell family world war 1

My great grandfather is buried in Abertillery and I am still trying to establish any history about him
He was Thomas Brickell who was killed in the first world war serving in the Oxford and Bucks light infantry. He was aged 45 and was taken back to Abertillery to be buried even though his address is in Birmingham.

His son also called Thomas was killed in the second battle of Ypres aged 16 in the previous year and is buried in Boulogne

I am considering visitng Abertillery in November for Armistice day (havent been there since I  was 4) to commemerate Thomas senior

Regards that address 12 Division Street, Abertillery, a child aged 8 months died at that address in 1908.
His name was Alfred Evan Alex Brickell and his grave is row 1/416 up at St. Paul's.

Register of Burials, St.Paul, Cwmtillery. (1891-1986).
Believe they are about 3.00p each, try googling Parish Chest.

The reference number I have for the St. Paul burials is PB15, believe it's available on CD Rom as well.
I don't bother with the fiche but each too their own.
Best of luck
