1911 Census shows Cornelius Callaghan living at 15 Iron Street Tredegar with his parents Thomas and Sarah and 5 siblings. His parents were born in Dowlais and he was born in Pontlottyn in 1900.Hope this helps.

Yes Cornelius' 5 siblings were all sisters namely in order of age in 1911 Margaret(19),Sarah(15),Mary(12),Norah(8),Bridged(3). The youngest was born in 1908 and would now be 111 and probably now deceased and it is not known what their married surnames would have been that is if they married at all.

Hi Callamars,
In the 1939 register there is a Thomas Callaghan aged 77 yrs WIDOW living in 22 Church Sq Tredegar with John and Irene Benbow. John is a wagon repairer and Thomas is down as Colliery Domestic duties. Irene May have been his daughter?

Looking at it again, Irene was born on 1906 so is unlikely to be Thomasís Daughter unless it is a middle name. May be a niece? This Thomas Callaghan was born April 14th 1862. Donít know if this ties in with your information. There are 2 others living in the house in 1939 but their records are Private/ closed / secret. Hope Iím not leading you up the wrong path, but may be worth checking.

I have had a quick look at the 1939 register and there are only 2 other addresses in Tredegar that had Callaghanís in residence at that time.
1) Mary A and James Callaghan Both born in 1888. Living in 21 Inkerman Tc. With one other person (Private)
2) Kathleen Callaghan born May 14th 1921 a University student living in 21 Park Hill with Brynley Philips and Annie M Thomas (Philips).
There are lots of Callaghanís in the valleys e.g. Daniel C born 1916, Timothy C born 1917, and Mary C born 1890 all living in Plymouth St. Merthyr. There many others eg in Merthyr, Rhymney, Pontlottyn, Cardiff, Newport, Llantwit Fadre, etc etc. Canít see anyone in 1939 living in Ashvale, Try the electoral rolls you may pick up something there. If I get a chance Iíll give it another look sometime. Happy hunting! G
