How the story goes with William - William was the Baptist minister of Norton Street Baptist Church, Knighton. There was a falling out and the parishioners split. The split-off group decided to build their own chapel in Victoria Road. This was said to be a hard thing for William to cope with, he was full of shame that his church had split. It affected him so much that he took his own life by hanging himself in his house the 'Belmont' on Tuesday 4th November 1919. The facts; He was Baptist Minister of the church for over 40 years. He did indeed hang himself in his own home. There is a chapel in Victoria Road. But..... was it due to the breakaway group? The year before he had been seriously ill as was reported in the Brecon & Radnor Express on 29 August 1918. "Rev. W. Williams was taken suddenly ill some days ago, and was unable to conduct the services at the Knighton Baptist Church on Sunday, August 18th and last Sunday. During the week, but especially on Thursday, many enquiries as to the rev. gentleman's health, were made at his residence, "Belmont." His numerous friends will be glad to know that he is now making most satisfactory progress, towards recovery from a very .serious illness." Was this a more serious illness than was reported? i.e. did he know he had an illness that was going to kill him and he took his own life before it could? I would order is death cert but that would probably just say that it was death by hanging. You would think that there would be a newspaper report on his death but as yet I can't find one. I haven't found any reports on the 'Split' that was supposed to have taken place either, and I don't know when the chapel in Victoria was built. Any suggestion on where I go from here?
