Gwybodaeth bellach


Edwin Maskell Evans was born in Abercarn on 23 August 1887, the second son of John and Frances Evans. In 1901 the family were living next to the Beaufort Arms in Abercarn where they were joined by Edwin’s older brother Fred who was working as a striker for a blacksmith. By 1911 Edwin was working as a Coal Trimmer and had moved into lodgings at 4 Davies Street, Newbridge, where he lived with the Trott family. The 1911 Census was taken on Sunday 2 April 1911, but seventeen days later on 19 April 1911 Edwin had set sail for a new life in Canada aboard the RMS Royal George. The ship departed from Avonmouth (Bristol) destined for Montreal, Canada, under the stewardship of Captain James Harrison. In the 1911 Census of Canada, Edwin (or Eddie as he now called himself) was living in Penticton, British Columbia, and had found employment as a deck hand on SS Okanagan. His attestation papers show that he enlisted in Calgary in January 1915. He was 5ft 6.5in tall and had a 38in chest. His next of kin is noted as George Evans of 6 Davis [sic] Street, Newbridge. He was killed in action in the advance from Pozieres to Courcelette in the Somme offensive.
