Yes I will get birth cert. Have seen the 1911 census and he left for Canada that same year followed by Clara and 2 children in 1912. Any info on his family would have come from him but can be sometimes faulty as I discovered with my own mother.
Thanks for your interest Sandra,it is much appreciated. I did find 2 young children in a workhouse and their birthplace is Ebbw Vale, Monmouth. Is that near Pontypool?
Tahnks for your interest, Sandra. Appreciate it!!!
