Brickell family

My great grandfather was Thomas Brickell who is mentioned on the war memorial in St Pauls church. I am looking for any information about him or famly. Especially interested in his war records. thanks

There are still Brickell's living in the area, Alfie Brickell (ask anyone involved in rugby in Abertillery or Blaina). And Pamela (Brickell) McCullock. Not sure of the spelling of Pam's Married name.

Do you know which regiment Tony ?
Didn't know about the one up St. Paul's but there's commemorations in both St. Michael's and the Eberneezer.

Hi Tony

Taken from the book First World War Graves and Memorials in Gwent by Ray Westlake.

Cheshire Regiment 18732 T Brickell
Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry 25027 T Brickell

Got a feeling both will be on the actual War Memorial as Ray Westlake doesn't name the churches with commemorations until his second book.

Hope it helps

Drew a blank this time Tony. Regards the Brickell living at 37 Vivian Street in 1915, the next book 1922 lists Alfred Thomas Brickell and Elizabeth Brickell as living there.
There was a Thomas Brickell living at 12 Division Street in 1913/1914 but must have missed who was there in 1922.
Regards the Brickell's living Hill Street, Park Place and Tillery Street in 1915, none were still there in 1922.

thanks for your help on this. Sounds like a bit of a dead end.
