Welsh has no silent letters at all. It has compound letters which are represented by double characters. These have their own position in the Welsh alphabet, which goes thus:

A B C Ch D Dd E F Ff G Ng H I (J) L Ll M N O P Ph R Rh S T Th U W Y

These compound letters exist becasue of a campaign in the 19th century to standardise Welsh spelling using only the Roman alphabet. The characters used for the compounds before then were - er - different :-)
