Hope they are helpful  :)

It would be interesting to find out if there was re-numbering.

On the 1891 Census I can see an Isaac A Jones, age 7, parents Isaac and Ellen.

The Schedule No. is 109. The address is London Road - the houses are not numbered. Looks as if the property is next the Royal Oak (Schedule No. 108).
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

Schedule number is just the ref, HT*. The house number is different.

*Added - They refer to the number on the form that the household head filled in (household schedule). This was then transcribed into the enumerators book.  The only schedules we see are the 1911 ones. Others have been destroyed.

Isn't the poster quoting the schedule No. as the house no?

I think it was where his grandfather was born:
My Taid, Isaac Alun Jones was born at 109 London Road, Corwen, I think?

I've tried looking on Google maps etc but can't find the location of this house?

Could it have been demolished or do I have the wrong address?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

But see that your names are the same - so  it could be number 10 after all :-X

Here's the Royal Oak and next door(s):

I assumed that the OP had the info from a birth cert!

Added - I'm sure the OP has inserted his grandfather's name in the original post since I started looking  :(

Hi all,

I've managed to get a photo of the family gravestone and the inscription says 4 London Road.

One of my Taids sisters is on the headstone Mary Ellen Jones died 16 June 1878 aged 5.

Is there any way of finding out what she died from?

You could order her death cert from the GRO*:

Corwen, Quarter 2, vol 11b, page 306.
