Hi
Spoke to a good friend of Annie and Gwyn a few days ago. Tells me that there are family still living in Pwllheli area. He was away at the time of Annie's death; was later told by Gwyn that she'd suffered a heart attack, which would account for her having drowned in an area she was very familiar with. He agrees with the newspaper account that it was winkles she was collecting ; she was wary of eating mussels because of the risks involved; regularly collected and cooked winkles.
Gwyn worked moving animals around in the Mart in Pwllheli ; was killed by being crushed by a bull in a pen.
Sending PM.
Emyr

I don't know if anyone is still viewing this post, however I am trying to find if Ann had a son, John Leslie Jones ?

Hi
Nobody of that name mentioned in list of relatives in obituary.
