Cefn Golau is a disused cholera cemetery situated on a narrow mountain ridge between Rhymney and Tredegar, South Wales.

The graves date from 1832 to 1855 with many for August and September 1849.
One is for Thomas James, who died 18 August 1849, aged 24 years. The inscription reads:

One night and day I bore great pain,
To try for cure was all in vain,
But God knew what to me was best,
Did ease my pain and give me rest.
