The Inscription on The Tombstone of Arthur Eric Williams (known as Eric), and Erica Anitoff Williams, reads as follows:
ARTHUR ERIC WILLIAMS SON OF MR. & MRS. J. O. WILLIAMS LABRADOR HOUSE SOUTHERNDOWN WALES BORN JULY 30 1913 LOST HIS LIFE IN A FIRE ON THIS SPOT FEB. 3RD 1940 IN A VAIN ATTEMPT TO SAVE HIS BABY DAUGHTER ERICA AGED 18 MONTHS. GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS.
But at least Six Discrepancies exist that cast serious doubt about its truthfulness:
1 The following additional words were inscribed on the small original concrete headstone but left out from the final inscription:
HAVING SAVED HIS WIFE HE DIED IN THE FLAMES WITH HIS DAUGHTER ERICA.
After hearing about the deaths for the first time, J.O. Williams would subsequently have heard about other circumstances involving Eric, Keith Yonge, the local company Manager in Port Hope Simpson and Olga. J.O. decided to remove any mention of Olga, Eric's wife from the inscription for all time.
2 The original nameplate of the house that J. O. Williams built, (he was known as Jack within his family) is made up of only one word: "LABRADOR" and not "Labrador House" as found on the inscription.
3 Erica was an illegitimate child who was 43 months two days old when she died and not 18 months as inscribed.
4 Also according to her birth certificate, Erica was born on 15 July 1936 at 29 St. Isan Road, Heath, Cardiff but no house existed on that plot of land at that time.
5 The main permanent address of Mr. & Mrs. J. O. Williams when Eric and Erica died in acrimonious, suspicious circumstances on 3 February 1940 is probably false because by 15 March 1938 Mr. & Mrs. J. O. Williams in fact lived at Flat 23 Kenilworth House, Westgate Street, Cardiff, Wales and Arthur Eric Williams was living next door at Flat 14 Dunraven House, Westgate Street, Cardiff, Wales. It is highly likely the flats were their true permanent addresses on the night that Eric and Erica died . Labrador House would most likely have been kept as a holiday home by the sea for the use of the Williams family.
6 Furthermore, Labrador House is located in Ogmore-by-Sea, Dunraven Bay, Bridgend, Wales and not in the village of Southerndown which is one mile away. The name "Dunraven" is not only self-explanatory but it is also associated with smuggling in that particular area of South Wales; 29 July 2002
