Thank you all for your help, you have confirmed my suspicions. I think I will need to obtain a copy of a birth certificate to be certain.

Family History Beginners Board / Parents of John Havard, Brecon area
« on: Monday 10 February 20 22:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, hoping someone may be able to trace the parents of John Havard born 1887.

He died 18/12/1959 age 72 in Llanfrynach, Brecon.
He was married aged 23 on 07/12/1910 in Brecon Registrar Office, his father is shown on the Marriage certificate as John Havard.
1911 Census shows his age as 23,birth place shown as Merthyr Cynog, living with his wife Emily in Llanfrynach.
1939 shows his date of birth as 02/05/1887.

I originally thought his birth was registered in Builth in 1886 11b page 91, parents John and Margaret (Nee Williams) but 1911 census shows they had 9 children and only 7 were still alive. I have found a burial for a John Havard age 21, buried 25/09/07 aged 21 in St Marys, Crickadarn, and Helena Maud Havard aged 4, so believe these could be the two deceased children.

I believe his birth should have been registered in Brecknock but have been unable to find any record in 1886/1888.
I would be grateful for any tips as I have hit a brick wall. Many thanks

Breconshire / Re: elizabeth ann powell baptised Aberedw 1893

Hi, yes it is the same person. The only dates I am certain of  was her marriage took place on  06/08/1918.  Her age on marriage certificate appears to be 23 which suggests she was born 1894/1895. I know she passed away on 06/06/1953, Death Certificate shows age as 60 which suggests she was born 1892/1893.  The 1939 census shows date of birth as 01/09/1893 which would mean she died aged 59.  Her marriage certificate shows she was living in Llanfrynach.  Father shown as deceased on marriage certificate, no name given.
If you have any suggestions I would appreciate your help.

Hi, can anyone help trace family history of Elizabeth Ann Powell. She was baptised on 07/05/1893 in Aberedw, her Mother was Eliza Powell, address given as Drovers Arms, Builth. Her birth was registered in Builth 11b page 69. Believe her Mother Eliza was baptised in 1865, parents Thomas and Ann Powell.
I would like to know if possible what happened to Elizabeth Ann from 1901 onwards. Many thanks

That's very good of you. I have managed to get details and a map showing the site. I would very much like to visit if I get a chance.  If I am unable to visit I may well take you up on your kind offer.

Finally found Elizabeth and Frederick's final resting place. They were cremated at Glyntaff Crematorium and buried in the grounds.
Still trying to trace Elizabeth's parents.

Hi Sam, I have contacted Bridgend Council previously but with no success. I contacted Aberkenfig Resource Centre today and they checked their records.  They managed to find Frederick's father of the same name in Gelliron Cemetery (Pontycymmer), eventhough he was living in Swansea when he passed away. Thanks for your suggestion.
One step closer.

Hi Sam, thanks for checking Skewen and Briton Ferry too.  According to Family Search Frederick William Shayler was baptised in Coychurch, Peterston Super Montem  in 1892. Does anyone know which Church or Chapel this was likely to be?
