If you are able to check the street index's of Conwy to confirm my Dad was a Jackdaw

I've searched the RSPB website but unfortunately he's not listed.

Chris -  I'm sure Hugo will find more info for you but in the meantime, I have located a H Ward, labourer, who was living at 4 Roosevelt Terrace, Llandudno Junction in 1929.  He probably had died by 1939 as the householder is then listed as Mrs H Ward.

Thanks Cam - That is the right one because i have a copy of death certificate Harry died in 1926 at the young age of 39 from my understanding he was working at llandudno Jct on the railway
and had some kind of accident and lost an arm which eventually led to his death

I went to the Conwy Archives and had a look at two Street Indexes.   The 1922 didn't have Harry Ward in Berry Street so he must have moved to the Junction by then.

The 1914 Street Index did have Harry Ward in it living at No 34 Berry Street and Harry's occupation was a gardener.

So Chris you are indeed a Jackdaw but only just!   The cottage was the very last one near the town walls and it has since been demolished and replaced by this these  modern houses or flats.  The photo was taken today and your Taid's cottage would have been next to the steps and the walls, so very little privacy in the back garden

Many thanks Hugo and a picture as well ! Harry was a gardener a bodlondeb until the first world war but don't think he ever returned to it because he joined the railway early 1920's

Hugo, those new mews houses were built after the Territorial Army Drill Hall was demolished in 2003.

Thanks Bri,  I bet there is a photo somewhere of Chris's Taid's old cottage before the demolition occurred.

Sorry Chris, but I meant that your Dad was a Jackdaw and not yourself.     :-[

It is a big old fashioned building and here is what they say about themselves.

The Daffodil Hotel and Spa offers contemporary luxury on the shores of Grasmere water, located in the heart of The Lake District and just a short walk into Grasmere village. A full English breakfast is served each morning and free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

Rooms at The Daffodil Hotel and Spa are stylish and spacious, each with a flat-screen TV and media panel, en suite bathroom with complimentary Molton Brown toiletries, luxury crisp cotton linen, ironing facilities and still bottled water.

Guests staying at The Daffodil can also indulge in the hotelís luxury spa complete with Germaine De Capuccini therapies and products, a 10m thermal pool, steam room, sauna and tepidarium.

The restaurant at The Daffodil serves a traditional British menu with a modern twist. The dining room enjoys a lake view, as does the Sitting Room where afternoon tea is served. In addition the property has a beautiful terrace for enjoying the finer weather.

The hotel is ideally situated on the A591 as you enter Grasmere which allows easy access to the popular Lake District towns of Keswick 13 miles to the north and Ambleside 4 miles to the south.


I like the Lake District  as it has some fabulous scenery and some excellent driving roads!   :D
Enjoy!

Regular visitors to Grasmere and stay at Bridge House Hotel, highly re comended.
Good base for touring around. If you enjoy easy walking get hold of a copy of booklet " Nowt but scenery " .
Hope you enjoy your stay.

Grasmere is a lovely village-- stayed near there a few times in different places. Skelwith Bridge Hotel-- Highfield House in Hawkshead and The Old Vicarage in Ambleside to name a few of them
The only tip I can offer is take warm clothes if you are venturing outside. It is perishing up there in winter !
Just as an aside-- once lost a clutch over Hardknott !

                 I have a pass from Llandudno Town Hall to enable me to have free entry to the Marine Drive for access to the Great Orme Cemetery to visit relative's graves. Does that pass cover free parking at the Summit Complex as apparently the purchase of a ticket at the Tollgate is valid for parking there and must be displayed when you park there?

I recently purchased the Annual Pass for £15 from the Town Hall and it covers me to park at the Summit.

I think you will find that the Cemetery Pass only covers visits to the departed.  The two passes are different colours.    Z**
