Don't know if he was any relation but John Vater Arndell was a dairyman and general dealer. He was residing at 12 High Street, Six Bells, Abertillery in 1933.

There were Arndell`s living in Richmond road who had a Milk Round the Daughter was Betty, she used to help out on the Milk van take the money etc.

Believe the green tin school was the infants school which was behind High Street in Six Bells.

The Arndell family who lived in Richmond Road lived at number 8. Jack was a milkman, and his wife was Gert. Their children were Betty, Joan, Norman (who ran a newsagents in Llanhilleth), Ken (who moved to Berkshire), and Mary (who married Bert Mills, a butcher, and lived in Princess Street. I'm still in touch with Ken's son, Roger, who now lives in Spain.

Arndell the Milk

I wonder if that was the same milkman who used to deliver milk with a horse and cart in the 1930's? He would stand up in it like a charioteer as I remember him rounding the top of Griffin St into Arrail St. He served milk from a churn using 1/4, 1/2  and 1 pint dippers.  I ran out of our house one day right under the horse's hooves - but no harm done!

Fred Coombes was delivering from the 1920's, don't know if he covered that part of Six Bells though.
Fred Howells and Bill Symmonds did ours the other side of the river.

Arndell Dairyman

When War restrictions began milkmen had their own "zones". After the horse and cart era our new milkman was Mr Scourfield from Griffin St. His daughter, Dilys the Milk, always had her hair in curlers as she did her job, but I've just remembered that before Dilys we had Melvyn the Milk from Blaenau Gwent. We thought Dilys' name was Schofield but her father told us it was really Scourfield.
