I’m researching these two families for my husband’s friend.

Note: I have searched other trees on here.

His late father was Dilwyn Stewart Roberts Born 1927 in Clydach Vale, Rhondda, Wales. Died 1968 in Trowbridge Wiltshire.

Dilwyn Stewart Roberts Parents were: David John Roberts 1882-1951 and Margaret Ann Davies 1885-1951.

They both died at home, 55 Oak Street, Clydach Vale, Rhondda.
( David John Roberts was Chairman of Tonypandy branch of the British Legion for many years.) I have Death Certificates for both.

Other known children of David John Roberts & Margaret Ann Davies.
Taliesyn Roberts 1907-1989 married Evelyn Kate Beeton nee Clark. No children.
Taliesyn died in Reading. Berkshire. Death Certificate. Evelyn died 1979 in Berkshire.

A. I'm looking for anyone who might be related to the Davies and Roberts Families for my husband's friend. He knows he has some relatives out there somewhere!

B. Others searching for their ancestors and families might be interested in the information I now have.
Roberts and Davies are difficult to pin down, especially when it comes to ordering Certificates in Wales.

C. Not everyone has their family tree on here but do subscribe to this site.
