The Jones Boys

My father Ivor Jones was born at Rhiw Parc, I was born at 21 Victoria Rd. My fathers brothers Ron and Bert Lived in Rhiw Park and Cwmtillery (I think) respectively.Another brother John lived at Bristol and another lived at Risca Uncle Joe. I am looking for any relatives. My grandmother Agnes Miller ( known as Darling) died at 100 some 15 years or so ago at Cwrt Mytton.My mother Laura Regler, Uncle Alfred Morgan Regler, Aunty Marion and Aunty Barbara Harrhy.

Joe Jones

Assuming I have the correct family, I knew your uncle Joe. We played bowls for Crosskeys together, sadly he passed away a few years ago. He lived opposite the fire station  just below Wainfawr Park between Crosskeys and Risca. His wife came on our bowls with Joe on many occasions but I dont know if there were any children, I will make some enquiries this week and let you know.
If you go onto another site " Abertillery Past and Present ", you will find some photos of R.P.Jones's lorries and I believe he would have been your grandad. You might even find some comments on the photos from family members. Joe always had his own lorry as well. Best of luck with your search.

"Pent" did they use those lorries in the film The Citadel ?

Yes Martyn I should have said that, and stoob they are one and the same, thats a little bit of cinematic history in aussie taffy's family past.

Ivor Jones and Laura M Jones did reside 21 Victoria Road, Six Bells in 1956.
There's also a Ronald Jones and Hannah Jones listed as living at 15 Rhiw Parc Road, Abertillery in the 1970 electoral register.
Believe the lorries belonged to Robert Philip Jones, and Walter Jones had a part in the 1936 film "The Citadel".

So that would probably mean Walter might be Aussie Taffy's grandfather and Robert Phillip Jones his Great grandfather, nice one stoob.

Yes I think so or she may have been born in India, her father was in the British Army and was sent to India?
