Address is Ynys Terrace, which comes just after a street (?) called Dolygarregddu on the image.

But just because she was at Garregddu Terrace when she married (when? where?), it doesn't necessarily mean she was there at the time of any census.

So many Joneses, and so many miners!

The joy of researching not just Jones but also a Jones/Jones marriage.

Are you sure you have the right certificate?
