There is a Robert Griffiths Dec 1894 Swansea Vol 11A page 971 mother's maiden name Holmes

He may have acquired the 'Henry' after registration, have you found any 'Holmes' visitors on census?

Good luck

Hi Deb,

If he died in Llwynypia hospital that would be the Rhondda area. He is not buried in a near local cem (Trealaw) try contact library at Pontypridd or Aberdare (Google for info) to see if burial record is within local area. They are very helpful. Pontypridd reg district covered a large area.

Hi,

Going by the attestation info, Robert states he is 19yr 1 month old at end December 1892 and gives a birth year of 1873.

This may be a complete red herring, but the only one to come up Dec Q 1873 with names Robert Henry is this one. As mentioned he may not have been registered.

BYRON, ROBERT  HENRY  Mmn     GRIFFITHS     
GRO Reference: 1873  D Quarter in SWANSEA  Volume 11A  Page 669

Not finding a Byron/Griffiths marriage for parents, death or census for the above, within area or timeframe.

Just a thought for the maybe list. Not a lot with surname Byron in Swansea or surrounding area.

Who were the witness on marriage cert and what was his address? It may help.

if this is Robert senior's death reg, he was recently deceased  at the time of the marriage

Robert Griffiths 50 sept qtr 1895 Pontypridd vol 11a pg 280

Possible marriage
Robert Griffiths march qtr 1875 Aberystwyth vol 11b pg 77 with Sarah Howells on the same page

But if this is family, why does Robert Henry say he was born in Swansea if he was born in Cardiganshire?
