    Exclamation Jones Family Brickwall

    Hi, wondering if anyone could help me find the parents of:
    Robert John Jones born 1926
    Myra Jones (married name Hackett) born 1930

    I think their mother was Annie Hughes born in 1902, but I can't find a definite birth record and I am unable to find who the father is.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Do you know where they were born?

    I have found Myra in 1939 with mother Annie & 3 closed records.

    8 Beech Mount Colwyn Bay.

    Marraige cert might have fathers name.

    There is only 1 birth for a Myra Jones that would fit the facts you have provided and that is:

    Apr Quarter 1930 Conway, Caernarvonshire Vol 11B Page 677

    Based on that birth the most likely birth for Robert is one of the following:
    Apr Quarter 1926 Conway, Caernarvonshire Vol 11B Page 924
    Oct Quarter 1927 Conway, Caernarvonshire Vol 11B Page 655

    Note these are listed as Robert J Jones.

    You can apply for the birth certificates at: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/c...ates/Login.asp

    Myra Jones married Mr Hackett in Denbighshire in 1949. If you apply for that marriage certificate it will tell you who her father was.

    There are certainly two births, on FreeBMD, in those years with the mother's maiden name Hughes. Registration district Conway which spans the boundaries of the counties of Denbighshire and Caernarvonshire.
    Are these two people deceased because we are not allowed to post the names of living people.

    In the 1939 Register Myra is shown living with an Annie Jones who was born in 1902, and who was married. There are 3 closed records in the household. I can't tell you any more details, because of the rules governing that data base.

    However, also using the 1939 Register I do not believe that the Robert J Jones born in the April Quarter 1926 was the brother of Myra, as he appears in that Register living elsewhere with 2 different adults who would appear to be his parents - its difficult to absolutely certain as the Register does not identify relationships.
