Karen, here's a link to the Conwy Archives in case you need it.    If Mrs Ann Hughes wasn't buried in the Council owned Cemetery at St Tudno's the other one would be St Hilary's at Llanrhos and they may have that info too

I'm not sure where to post this but when I was out walking with my dog I met a gentleman and we had a very interesting chat about the Great Orme.    He was born and raised on the Orme and had connections with the Owen family from Pink Farm and the Jones' from Ty Newydd Old Road
As well as talking about research he told me quite an amusing tale about his Grandfather David Owen.     Apparently David was a very good footballer in his day and played for Llandudno FC .    He was also very good friends with the legendary Everton footballer Dixie Dean and one day he asked Dixie if he could come over to Llandudno and present trophies at a forthcoming football match and Dixie immediately said yes.     The day before the match was due,  Dixie came over to stay the night in the cottage in Old Road.    In the evening David and Dixie decided to go out and have a drink.
Midnight came and as there was no sign of the two men the Nain locked the front door.    In the morning she opened the door to get the milk in and there they were the two of them,  fast asleep and hammered after a marathon drinking session
They don't build footballers like that anymore
