So - are we now trying to find this Frederick Truleove, and Edith Maud Truelove who were neighbours of Alexander Malcolm Truelove in Birmingham?

If so, we can discount the Swansea one, who died in 1947/8.

Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Because my dad remembers visiting someone in that area it seemed coincidental that there were other Trueloves as neighbours so I was trying to find some sort of connection or am I grasping at straws?

Aha

Marriage
Jan/Feb/Mar 1916
Birmingham
Ref 6d 413
Ethel M Kelly (spouse Truelove)    ..but none listed on link

However
Marriage
Jan/Feb/Mar 1916
Birmingham
Ref 6d 413
Frederick Truelovet / Ethel M Kelly

slip of someone's finger typing up the index!

So this might be the couple your rellies visited in later years. They must have been quite elderly by then.

Lets see what else we can find out about this couple, and see if it leads anywhere useful!
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

We really need that marriage cert to ascertain Frederick 's father's name

But this might be him

1901
Birmingham
William Truelove 41
Emily 33
Frederick 6
Lily 4
Clara 3       all bn Birmingham

So no links there to Cardiff?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

May be a coincidence but there is a John Kelly living in the same household as Alexander Truelove in 1939. Also Frederick Truelove has a middle initial 's' which could stand for Stephen.

Clotworthy, McMahon, Saunderson, Culley (Ireland & Scotland)
Weatherall, Greer (Ireland & Scotland)
Hamilton, Johnston, Dawson, Rennie, Wright (Clackmannanshire)
