Hi all

Wondering if there is any possibility of finding any information on the abovefamily

I visited my uncle who was called John in 1940, I think, though not sure his wife was named Bridget and there were two daughters named Rita and Joan
there was also a James O'Brien

I can't remember the whereabouts of where the family lived in Port Talbot

If anyone can shed some light on the problem I will be very grateful
