Hi, my name is Collene, I live in New Zealand, I have been try to get some information about my grandfather, James William Lewis, born in Bangor in Wales. He came to NZ and married Elizabeth Shaw who was from NZ, his dad was Henry (his mother was Susan Henry), he was a fisherman, that's all I have got to go on. Can anyone help? Collene

My grandfather was a Crosville driver in the 1960s, his name was Bob Jones, married to Margaret, does anyone remember him?

That photo is of neither Gwrych Castle OR Deganwy! It looks like Bodelwyddan Castle to me.
