Gelli Street, Caerau, Maesteg
« on: Thursday 16 March 06 22:11 GMT (UK) »
I received the death certificate of my Great Uncle today and discovered that he died in 1941, aged 61, which fitted in exactly with the details I've managed to obtain. Most of his male family, as were a lot of others, were lead ore miners from White GRit, Shropshire, but he appears to have been different.

His name was Thomas Enoch Redge/Ridge and died in Maesteg Hospital, of a gastric carsinoma. He had been living at 8 Gelli Street and someone named J. R. SOUTH, of the same address, had registered the death.

I believe this could have been James R South, who married Hilda Marion Symmons, in Neath in 1935, and that there are still people named South on that street.

I would be very interested to have any information about who lived there, especially between say 1921 and 1941. If anyone related to J. R. South reads this, or if someone else knows them, please get in touch or post a reply.

Anything will be gratefully received and acknowledged.
