Llewellyn family

My aunty and her first husband - Elsie (nee Horler) and Arthur Llewellyn had two sons.
Arthur Donald Sinclair Llewellyn born in Richmond Road, Abertillery in 1915.
His brother - Claude Beecraft Llewellyn - was born five years later in Portland Street, Abertillery.
Does anyone know if either of these brothers married and had families and, if they did, are the families still in the area?
Thanks

Thanks for finding the death, also the rest of the info.  Greatly appreciated.
Arthur senior died in 1930, so do not worry about him.

Arthur?
i see on 1901 Census Her dad was from Radstock Somerset- lots of miners came over from Somerset to Abertillery -My granddad and
Father amongst them!! Have you got the Census info for them ?

Elsie married Horace Jelly, my uncle.

I never knew this side of the family, however the Jelly family originated from Frome, Somerset in the mid nineteenth century.

I have started a blog on them, which is going along nicely.

Hi Ann
great Blog
only Jelly I knew in Blaina  had a Milk Round based  at the old  Blaina Station
he was Malcom Jelly and I  think the Milkround was started by his dad.
Probably related somewhere along the Line!!!
Still trying to sort LLewellyn`s.away for a week.

Thanks, glad you like the blog. I seem to remember someone telling me about a milkman but didn't know his name. Yes, no doubt there is a link way back.
Have a good time away
Speak soon

Blaina station

I worked in the office on Blaina station in the early 60s, and also remember Jelly the milk buying the station after the line was closed and turned it into lovely living accomodation and also had plenty of room for his milk floats and crates to be stored.

Thanks for that bit of information.  I must find out if he is related, I'm sure if I went back a few generations I would find a link.

Thanks again

Have just received the death certificate and it states that Claude was a Design Engineer at Aircraft Works.  Lived in Henleaze, Bristol.
Died from: 1) Coronary Thrombosis 2) Hypertension 3) Pernicious Anaemia.
He was married the time of his death (aged 54) so will now hunt for marriage record and send off for that certificate.
