The 1911 census places this family in Bod Afon Brook St. Arthur was a 16 year old ironmonger living with his parents William 45 a saddler and Mary 46. His siblings were Albert Edward 21 a coal hewer. The rest were all at school –  Beatrice 13, Kezia (?) 11, Myfanwy 10 , Herbert Crawford 8 and Phylis 7 . (The census forms tells us that Mary had given birth to 12 children in total and 10 of them were still alive so three were  not at home.)
