Administrative/Biographical history: Roath Burial Board appears to have been set up at some point between 1871 and 1875. It purchased land on Ty Draw Farm, Roath, Glamorgan, to provide a cemetery, but never built it. It appears to have been absorbed into Cardiff Burial Board when the boundaries of Cardiff were extended to include Roath in 1875.
