Bontuchaf in Bethesda, Llanllechid

Classification: Query
Does anyone know if there was a medical facility of some sort at Bontuchaf? I have a death record for a young child who died of measles at Bontuchaf and the informant was her mother listed as "Inmate" also at Bontuchaf. From census records and birth records, I know the family lived at Bryntirion near the Pant Dreiniog quarry. Also from census records, I know that the term "Inmate" often referred to a patient in a medical facility. The death record for that same mother, 27 years later, again lists Bontuchaf as her place of death however her memorial inscription says "of Bryntirion". If a small hospital or town infirmary existed there, that would explain the discrepancies. I am aware that there was a Quarry Hospital, though don't know exactly where it was or whether they would have treated the sick wives and children of the Quarrymen.

Any insight to this puzzle would be most appreciated.
