    It is with sadness that I would like to advise that my Uncle, Wickrema de Alwis, passed away on 20 October 2018. He was one of Sri Lanka's well known tea planters having worked at a number of fine estates during his life. Many young planters learned the job under him amd I am sure grateful to him for being an excellent teacher/guide. Uncle Wickrema's funeral is tomorrow 22 October at 4.30 pm at the the Kanatta New Crematorium. The body will lie at Jayaratne Funeral Parlour tomorrow 22 October from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm. Palitha de Alwis

  • Ian Gardner . Commented on Cymru

    It seems that Cymru later became a division of Tangakelle, Lindula. If there was a Manager's bungalow there was no sign of it in the 1950s. The bungalow on Cymru division of Tangakelle was a tiny affair in a tiny garden and could have been a manager's bungalow but that seems unlikely.
