Trying to track down great grandparents address, etc in 1901. My grandmother was born in 1900 (Q1) and called Alice Mary Watts, birth registered in Pontypridd area. I know my gr-grandmother was called Mary, not sure about gr-grandfather, always thought he was Fred. Can't find them so far, can anyone assist?

Yes, proving a little difficult to find.
Found your Grandmother's birth but no trace in the census.
Can only suggest you order a copy of her birth cert and it should confirm both parents names and addresses at time of birth.
Sorry can't be more help.:(

There is family in 1901 surname transcribed as Walto.

Civil parish Llanwonno
Reg district Pontypridd

Frederick G Walto age 22 born Somerset occ coal hewer
Alice wife age 23 born Mountain Ash
Alice M dau age 1 born Mountain Ash

The surname looks like it could be Watts. I looked for a marriage for a Frederick Walto to an Alice, but found a marriage for a Frederick George Watts to a Alice Oriel in the registration district on Pontypridd, year 1899, December 1/4.

As SML suggested the birth certificate will confirm the parents names.
