The pictorial memories on this page were kindly shared with us from the collection of Mr. Royden J. Jones, who was born in the front room of No.11, Heath Terrace, Ynyshir in January 1963.

Roy's father - Malcolm Jones - was born in the cellar of No.1 Standard Terrace, before moving with the family to 51, Heath Terrace. Malcolm was one of 13 children.
Malcolm's father - James Rees Jones - was the Lampman at Wattstown Colliery where all the sons of the family worked. They had all attended the Infants School on Graig Road, and later the Junior School on Ynyshir Road as did Roy.

Roy's Great Grandfather - also James Rees Jones, (Born in Neuaddlwyd, Cardiganshire) ran an undertaking business at 'Rhondda House' Now 110 Ynyshir Road, and he was responsible for the burials of the victims of the Wattstown Colliery disaster of 1905 (See photo in right hand column). James Rees and his family were in Scranton, Pennsylvania in the USA during the American Civil War, returning to Ynyshir in 1866.

Most of that generation are buried at Llethr Ddu Cemetery in Trealaw. Roy's mothers uncle - Giovanni (John) Assirati ran the Italian Chip Shop in Ynyshir. Roy's parents met in Assirati's chip shop, and they were later married at Pontypridd in 1955. Roy now lives in Croeslan, Llandysul, Ceredigion (Cardiganshire).
