I haven't actually tried the registry office since I found the mothers name.
I only had his fathers name. They are extremely helpful and did do a search
with different spellings of Louis(Lewis) for 10 years either side of the
date he should have been born. They also couldn't find his death
certificate, I am now guessing he may have ended up in a Swansea hospital? I
also tried Carmarthen for death cert as well.
I am certain that Lucy James is his mothers mother. I will try next week
with all the info I have since gathered.
I made so many notes from the census I can't read all my own writing! I
need to try and check the 1891 census again for Joseph Lloyd.
I also have to check the 1881 census again for Lucy, Edward and Louis again.
I was pushed for time as Llanellli Library was closing soon, and I may have
missed the entry.
Some of the microfilm at the begining seemed damaged so maybe it wasn't
there. I do live in Llanelli but I can't place a Llanlliedi Lodge, does
anyone know what district it would have been under?
