Glyn Edwards was born in Gladstone Villas in June 1943. After finishing at Alun (or Alun Grammar School.as it was then), he attended Cardiff University, where he studied English and French. He moved to London ('65) and met ('67) and married ('69) a Scottish girl, settling in Edinburgh. He passed from Covid-19 on 11 April 2020.

He took his family to Mold every school holidays. He loved his home town and he spoke very fondly of his school days.

He attended the Alun from '54 to '61. He was a regular contributor to "The Alunite" - an article he wrote reviewing a term in sixth form is attached. He also won the Ysgol Alun Eisteddfod chair in '61.

His ashes were interned today in Mold. As a school community we remember his passing. We would like to thank his daughter Mhairi Jarvie for the gift of his school cap, his prefect badge and a photograph of him with his older brother. They will go on display in school in his memory.
