This list of FR Station Masters is not complete or guaranteed to be fully correct. Names which are followed by a question mark are those where the tenure is not sure but extrapolated from known data. Most of this information comes from census records 1871- 1911 or Fr Archives.

In 1865 & 1867 Thomas Lloyd Prichard was Chief Station Master.

It would appear that Dduallt was a very umpopular location with a rapid turn-over of staff.

It is not thought that the GWR platform had its own Station Master

NOTE: * Henry Thomas Cooke appears in the 1881 census as Henry Thomas. This is believed to be a mistake by the person taking the census. He also appears to have been known as Henry Cooke on pays lists and H.T. Cooke in correspondance. The pay lists show also a H.T. Cooke who is of lower status. This person may well be an error for Thomas Henry Cooke, son of Henry Thomas Cooke. There is as yet no clear answer.

Names in italics may not actually be full Station Masters

Most dates given in table are approximate and may extend either side of those given.
