The Assender/Assinder family

My family history from Abertillery is that my mum, her father, mother, sister and 2 brothers lived in Abertillery until around 1939. My grandad Reginald Assinder married Catherine Leyshon. They lived at first around Gilfach Goch and Tonyrefail. My grandad was part of a big family, although he never spoke of brothers or sisters. My nan Catherine Leyshon passed away in 1943 when my Mum was just 13. My Uncles were Reginald and Frederick Assender, the change of the spelling took place when my Nan and Grandad got married. He was born Assinder, but married and died in the name Assender. My Aunty was Mary Leyshon (she was born before my nan and grandad were married), my grandad did not adopt her. They lived around Abertillery Arral street and Lancaster Street. My Mum and Dad moved back to Abertillery in the late 40's early 50's for a few years. My Dad Harold Heap was a Bevan Boy, when he finished his night shift at the Six Bells Colliery (we think), he helped on a horse drawn wagon delivering milk.
Does any of this ring a bell with anyone????????

Didn't see any "Heaps" for those three years, possibly in between or later. Surnames correct, take your pick on the spelling of Arrail Street.

Hello all,

Thanks Stoob for posting the electoral registers.

James and Amelia Assender are my great grandparents via their daughter Edith.  My dad Edith's son was born at 27 Arael Street during the second world war.  By then Edith was living in Weston-super-Mare which was pretty badly bombed so we think Nan went home to Abertillery to give birth.  

I know I've been in touch with Cathy and I think Glynis before. I will email you both with some more info I've found recently.  

Ian, you must be my Dad's cousin then, I will PM you once I've worked out how to  Smile
