Rhostyllen, Wrexham, North Wales
It has not been possible (as yet?) to locate a photograph of the demolished Primitive Methodist chapel in Rhostyllen, near Wrexham.
Local resident Victor Davies, who supplied the attached information and gave permission to use it, wrote: “The information I have published about the chapel was from a rare booklet about the history of Rhostyllen. The lady who wrote it has sadly passed away. The booklet is Rhostyllen Then and Now, compiled and published by Rebecca Angus (Women’s Institute), 1992.
Victor Davies also supplied these wedding photos with this note: “This is my Grandad (Vic Haynes) with his sister Gladys Haynes at her wedding in the 1950’s.”
