Someone in Canada with whom I share a distant twig on the family tree has discovered that he had a relative who was born in Tredegar and was a well-known musician and organist. He is keen to learn more about him but I can't find out anything. I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on it. He was William John Rees Davies - sometimes Davis - and was born in 1880. He married Elizabeth Maude Spencer in Pontypridd in 1911 and he died in 1962. I'd be grateful if anyone has any scrap of information about William.

I suppose someone had to say it! I'm beginning to think our William was a figment of someone's imagination.
By the way, you're giving your age away there.

I am a relative of William John Rees Davis. His father was William Albert Davis. My father was a cousin of WJR Davis. WJR was the organist of Christchurch, Ebbw Vale. Look forward to hearing from you.
