The Aberfan Parents' and Residents' Association represented the interests of the bereaved parents and other residents following the Aberfan disaster.
On the morning of 21 October 1966 in Aberfan, Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, 144 people, of whom 116 were children, were killed when a coal waste tip slid into the village engulfing some 20 houses and Pantglas Junior School. Following the disaster, a Tribunal of Inquiry was appointed by the Secretary of State for Wales under the chairmanship of Sir Herbert Edmund Davies. The Inquiry lasted from 29 November 1966 until 28 April 1967. Its report was published on 3 August 1967. During the Tribunal and afterwards the Aberfan Parents' and Residents' Association was represented by the firm of solicitors Morgan, Bruce and Nicholas, Pontypridd, with Desmond Ackner QC, Aubrey Myerson and Cyril Moseley being present at the Tribunal.
