Rhondda Valleys, Trealaw, Brithweunydd Road Coronation Party 1953

Rhondda Valleys, Trealaw, Brithweunydd Road Coronation Party 1953

Residents of Brithweunydd Road in Trealaw celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The party was held in a corrugated hut used by the 7th day Adventists, which was next door to the Smithy run by Len & Idris Vaughan. Included in the photograph are Gerald Morris, Mair Howells, Kay Prestidge, Julia Jones, Kay Oatridge, Naomi Coyle, Jimmy Coyle, Brenda Coyle, Mr & Mrs Kelly, Mr & Mrs Prestidge, Mr & Mrs Webb, Mr & Mrs Phillips, Ralph Waite.
Also included in the photograph are Horace and Len May - father and son. Horace had damage to his hand as the result of being shot through by machine gun bullets in WWI. Sadly, 12 years after this photo was taken, Len May was killed in the Cambrian mine explosion of 1965, aged 33. He was one of the last miners to have lost his life in the coal mines of the Rhondda. - photograph courtesy of Gwyn Howells - now resident in Cornwall.

 

As far as I am aware there were no coal mines at trealaw, and the resident coal miners must have worked in the nearby Llwynypia, and even Dinas coal mines. Trealaw is the location of one of the the Rhondda Valleys communal burial grounds. To date I believe there are over 90,000 Rhondda Souls buried there.
