Steve Veysey was born in Llanbadoc, Usk in 1958. After attending Risca Town Junior and Newbridge Grammar Schools he started work for the GPO, later to become BT, in 1974.
His later years with BT were spent as a trainer specialising in the delivery of software training to HM Prison staff and BT engineers. Married with two children and four grandchildren, he is now retired.
He has spent the last five years recording the details of the men and women of the surrounding areas who died in WW1 and WW2 and it is his privilege to keep their memory alive.
