Not sure if anybody can help - my grandfather is listed in the 1911 census as lodging at 19 Ceridwen Street, Maerdy. Would he have worked at Maerdy Coal Colliery? If so how would I trace him?? Name - George William Heath - may have been known as Bill. I have a photo of him at the Arms Park in 1910 I think?? IP: 86.179.129.134
