Hello, this is my first post so i hope i'm in the right section.

I am looking for info on the Morris surname in Merthyr Tydfil. My great grand father was Thomas John Douglas Morris (about 1892-1968). I don't know where he was born but he moved to aberfan when he was 14. He worked the mines until 1928. He was married to Margaret Morris (maiden davies). I know that they lived at 35 hamilton street, pentrebach but some documents i have suggest they may have also lived on the same street at number 30. I know of three siblings but there is probably more, Violet Morris, Margaret Morris and a male "J. Morris", maybe John. I am completely stuck on Thomas and cannot get any further back up the Morris side so i would be extremely greatful for any info.

Thanks a lot,

Jen

Hi Jen

Try this link for U.K Births, Marriages, Deaths, this may be your Thomas John Douglas MORRIS.

At the moment I cannot access the 1901 census as the Website is down for maintenance. Someone else on FHUK may get access to 1901 sooner than me.
