Birthplace - a Memory of Ynysmeudwy.

I was born in Curtis Row, Ynysmeudwy Road in the early 1950s. My late father was a coal miner and my mother worked at the watch factory.

We moved to London around 1959 as there was a lack of work. I am now trying to build a family tree. My grandparents had eleven children and lived in Ystradgynlais on the Gurnos estate.

If anyone has any information on the Nicholls family I would be so grateful.

Many thanks.
