The Twins Inn stood on the Coedcae in Nantyglo, I was born here in 1944 and it was my home until 1958.
John and Mary Jones were my Great Grandparents and Pheobe Jane my Grandmother, she died in 1946 before my second birthday, John and Mary also had another daughter Amy, she died in 1899 age 8 they are buried with her.
This image was given to an auntie many years ago by Hannah, she had copies made for my mother and her brothers, this was scanned from my mothers copy.
Obviously I didn't take the photograph, I did a small amount of work on it, and found all the names via my aunt and various census's.
The interesting part historically is that the Twins Inn was once a Chartist Lodge and that Dr William Price held many meetings there. (This information courtesy of local historian Trevor Rowson).
Dr William Price was born in Rudry in 1800 and died in Llantrisant in 1893 he was a Chartist, doctor,druid and pioneer of cremations.
The man responsible for getting cremations legalised.
I put Dr William Price into Google and there is plenty of information and images available.
