Walbyoff or Wakely families

I have bought some furniture at auction and discovered some love letters hidden inside form the 1950s from Trevor Walbyoff to Margaret Wakely. They later married. There are also some photos. He was originally from Brynmawr and she was from West Side, Blaina.
I would be grateful if anyone could help me to reunite these pieces of family history with the family.
It will all be at Asset Estates in Abertillery.
Many thanks
Tim

My late mother was Muriel Walbyoff, her brother Ivor is alive and living in Norfolk. My grandfather was 1 of i think 7 children so I think there are a few Walbyoff cousins still in the area.

Thank you Gareth. We seem to have generated some interest on Facebook via the Asset Estates Brynmawr page. As Mr Walbyoff was from Brynmawr that seemed to be one of the best places to go.
I'd just like to reunite the letters and anniverasry card and NCB photo with the family.

No problem.
My gt grandparents had 10 children infact, and all ( until the mid 1990's) lived in Brynmawr,Bliana, Nantyglo or Abertillery areas.
Walter, Lovis, Rose, Leonard, Rhoda,Sarah,Jack,Wilfred, Danny & Horace born between c.1900 and c.1916. So i'm guessing (hoping) that your 'find' is part of my family....

Gareth,  Your uncle Ivor was a great friend of mine when we were teenagers.  We even trained as teachers together when we were are Caerleon College.  Is there any way of getting in contact with him?
gareth
