Administrative/Biographical history: The Ramoth Baptist Church, Cowbridge, Glamorgan, was founded in 1820. The brethren were Welsh, and the services were conducted in that language until the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1967, the church merged with the Presbyterian Church of Wales and consequently became known as the United Free Church. The Church has remained largely autonomous despite retaining affiliations to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Presbyterian Church of Wales. In 1975, a survey was undertaken of the gravestones in the cemetery.
