Hello is there any one who used to live in the children's home in Tredegar. I am doing a project for a college course and would like to find out what it was like for a child living in the Children's home.

I am researching the family history of Thomas Jones (my great grandfather) born 1850 in Tredegar,

He migrated to Australia in ? & was a miner around Timor near Maryborough in central Victoria. He married Mary Lauder in 1875 at Sebastopol near Ballarat, Victoria.

Father's name was Edward Jones, a tailor & the mother's name Tamar Jones (nee Davies) - information obtained from Thomas Jones' Marriage Certificate.

Unfortunately, I don't have any further details to pass on.

I would like sufficient information, if obtainable, to be able to apply for Thomas Jones' Birth Certificate or his father (Edward)'s Death Certificate.

If you are able to 'fill in the missing gaps' for me I would be most appreciative. Many thanks.

My mother and her brother spent some years in the 1930s and 1940s living in The Nutshell Children's Home, does anyone have any photos of the house? Mum's name was Joyce Llewellyn and her brother was Maurice Llewellyn. Both were from Abergavenny.

Any photos of Ty Bryn Institute, Bedwellty would be interesting too, as would any photos of Sirhowy School from the 1930s, or Earl Street School in the very early 1940s.

Many thanks Paul

Hi all i was just wondering after moving away from Tredegar 11 years ago I'm looking to move back to the area but I'm not sure which is the best area to live in don't get me wrong every area has their fair share of problem neighbours and kids I've seen that there are flats around st. Gorges just by church street available but have been told that its a rough area to live in now but always thought that it was a peaceful area growing up in Tredegar any advice on the areas around Tredegar which ones are best and worst would be very appreciated thanks

A year or so ago I spoke to a chap in Luxembourg who mentioned that he was taught in Tredegar by an ex Bangor University man, John Meyrick. As I was great friends with a John Meyrick at Bangor, who if I recall had a twin brother at Swansea Uni, I have tried ever since to find John,but with no luck. Just seen John's photo in the Tredegar School XV photos on this site and am wondering if anyone can tell me if he is still around. I visit Llandovery often to see the grandsons play for the College, so could call in on John if he is still in Tredegar. I also served in the RAF at Upavon with Leighton Jenkins, who I also recognised in the school XV photo.
Would welcome help to get a message to these two 'reprobates'. I now live in France. John L Roberts

I just want to say what a fabulous event it was on Saturday! I traveled up from Cornwall especially to see Jonathan Antoine. The whole evening was amazing with the choir reducing me and many others to tears with a few of their songs. The Les Mis medley was beyond words! The music, voices transported you to the baracades! Beverley was also a delight with her mix of songs and fun! Jonathan himself was incredible! Songs he had never performed live before! Weren't we all spoilt that night.. What a humble, genuine and so very talented young man he is.

On returning to our hotel the night didn't end there! We were treated to a sing song with the choir., which we all joined in! sue, Sarah and myself ( tshirt ladies ) truly appreciated the kindness extended from you all and we will be back! So many thanks go out to you all...

Hi Phillip, Sirhowy Ironworks was literally a stone's throw away from Colliers Farm in 1835. Colliers Farm still exists today and is located just south of the old Sirhowy School site (now demolished) and new houses built there.Have a look at the old OS maps in the Gallery section and you will see Colliers Farm.

My ancestor Thomas Vaughan (1787-1853) was head bookkeeper at 'Sirhowy Works' in 1835. What was this works at this date - Iron? Tinplate?
His son Phillip was said [Pontypool Free Press newspaper account of his Golden Wedding] to have been born in 1837 at 'Colliery Farm, Sirhowy'.

I should be very pleased if you can help me find details of this place, if it still exists [or was maybe since demolished].
Thank you # Phil

I have just read the comments about the tanker collision by Sirhowy Bridge. I remember it well as I was living in Pen-y-Bont at the time. It was about 1953. I think the tanker ended up in the front room of Dai Perry house. dai was the head master of Dukestown Infants School. John Burston
