Sadly, whilst working on the Ellery page, I noticed another young casualty of WW1. I have set up the pages in memory of John Ellery and I’ll update them as soon as possible. For now there is just a link to the CWGC certificate. John Ellery
I’ve trialled a new way of setting out the family tree and updated the shortened story of the Ellery family. It looks good on mobile phones as well as the laptop. I would love you to have a look and see what you think. I’ve tried to keep it simple but attractive (that also makes it easier to work with and therefore more likely to be kept up to date).

This morning’s ambition was to finish off Gwenda’s pages, so that’s done, and the school page, then I started on the Chapels of Bwlchgwyn. The page has been updated with a few more memories and anecdotes, and I notice quite a few quotes from Gwenda. If anyone feels safe enough to brave the traffic between Bethesda and High View, I would love some pictures of the Old Chapel and also of any building remains on the opposite side of the road by High View. Please, pretty please?
This page has had a major update including a change of name to Bwlchgwyn School (Hilary) to avoid confusion with Gwenda’s page which ends with (Gwenda).
I’ve added a couple more memories of my own to the page, included some quotes from Gwenda (though I might move them later) and will add some memories of dad’s stories soon.
These have been greatly improved and, like everything on this site, should look just as good on a smart phone as on a table, laptop or desktop monitor. I might have some menu tweaking to do in the morning, but it’s been a good evening’s work.
A few more pages improved and updated this morning, it is noticeable how much things have changed in ten years 🙂
Another page makeover, a linear display instead of tabular, and it looks really good on the iPhone. Upper Frederick was important to us because the first of mum’s ancestors that we found was Alexander Ralston, born 1800, lived in Toxteth.
Another page improved, the previous site was all created with tables, so it’s just a case of rearranging. This is a more personal page and there are links to the CWGC pages.
This page has been tidied and updated today. I have new photographs on my desktop and I’ll probably add them over the weekend – definitely something to look out for!
Some good news at last, I have a new website! The only con is that all the content has been copied and pasted from my previous site so, for the time being, it’s going to seem a bit out of date. But it is progress! I hope you like the new modern design, too, a nice fresh look.
