The Tinsley - Sheffield link

Mr Edward [Ted] Evans was in touch and sent the photo below and explanatory text.  We are grateful Ted has given permission to use his family archive.

 I have just been browsing Llanymynech on Wikipedia and discovered your local history group....My Grandfather, William Evans , was born there on November 30th 1878....... My great Grandfather  , also William was a Rockman and he was married to Elizabeth , formerly Davies.....I believe my Grandfather had sisters and at least two brothers ... One brother , Richard , died in 1906 in South Africa in the service of the Cape Mounted Police... Another brother , Edward , served in , and survived, the Great War of 1914-18.
I am posting this very old photo of workmen and I believe the man in the centre of the back row could be my Great Grandfather.

The obituary below gives more background to the Evans’ move from Llanymynech. The ‘brothers’ referred to are in fact the sons of the deceased

OBIT William Evans 1879-1965 moved to Sheffield 1919

The old postcards below, also sent by Ted Evans, should be of familiar locations but of a very different time to the present. The location of a petrol station and the lack of vegetation on the hill are striking differences.
