Memories of Tonypandy
My great-grandparents and great-great grandparents owned and ran the Faggot & Peas Shop in Tonypandy, Dunraven Street. Does anyone remember the shop? It was owned by Reuben Smith and his wife, and was passed onto their daughter. Can anyone remember who owned it? I would love to hear your memories!
Hi, I am searching for any information on a Tom Morse who moved to Tonypandy, I think between 1901 -1910, from Pembrokeshire, to become a coal miner. The information I have is that he married a local girl who ran a local newsagents and had 4 children.
Does anyone remember my great grandfather, Edward Stanley Carpenter? Does anyone know someone who remembers him as a lay preacher there towards the beginning of the twentieth century? I would love to hear the recollections. Caroline Scot.
Sometime between 1900 and 1940 Thomas Arthur Livingston taught in Tonypandy. He had children, is there anyone out there who can provide a clue as to what happened to him, or a photo of the school with or without him.
