Have these sisters been identified on the 1939 Register? I'm thinking to at least rule out that he's still with them at that point.

Interesting idea. My paternal great grandmother was killed by a bomb but I haven't got her death cert.

Thanks :) You made your post while I was typing and I just decided to submit it anyway because I was pleased with myself for at least getting a word or two  ;D

I'm only learning Welsh so I'm sure a native or fluent speaker would have much better input:

My first thought was that "lleidr" in modern Welsh is "thief". That would make sense in context. ("You are a thief"). It is also using informal 'you', so two people who knew each other?

You are a thief if you something [you go?] ...

Now I'm curious what 'ledrettyst' is... 'st' is added for 'you' but I have no idea what the root word is.

Well, at least it wasn't entirely in vain! What a nuisance though. The one in my family that gets me is "probably old age". "Probably". He was in his 90s, so fair bet I guess?

The number of child deaths is absolutely unthinkable, isn't it?

I poked at a branch-in-law the other day. I knew the first two children were twins and one died aged 5, but the other one had a name that was reused later on. I had another look and found a death but the age was two years out. Then I realised the burial was one day before the twin I found. Upon looking at the burial register I found the entry I already had (Mary, dau of Richard ATTY) and one entry before was "Isabell and John, son and dau of Richard ATTY". Isabell was the one aged 7, not John. They had three children buried in two days  :-[

On the topic of Rhesus- my mother had a rhesus conflict with my older brother so I was tested at birth and came back O-. However as an adult I became a blood donor and tested O+. I asked about this and got a vague response, potentially that the amount of rhesus factor that I carry in my blood is so small that the test in the 1980s couldn't detect it but they can now. They are obliged to label my blood as positive but I might well be positive to donate and negative to receive. I'm a bit disappointed not to 'still' be O- given what a valuable blood type it is for donation.

Well, I imagine not many 22 year olds are 3ft 6!

Good for him though, wonder what he did for a living?

There are a few of those about. I have to at least admire the amount of work that went into tracing a tree from modern day back to Eden even if it has to be nonsense (even if one counts the Bible as truth, good luck linking your family back to it!)

Hi Heather, thank you for your contribution.

This thread is from 2013 and honestly I'd forgotten all about it. Sadly I still haven't even visited the grave, much less restored it.
