Signalman for 30 years,and with company for c46 years

Involved in accidents at Dinas/Glan-y-Pwll in 1881 and 1897 (see Accident Record and Day Log)

In 1901 was living at what appears to be Rafail wen but no such place appears to exist.

He retired in 1906.

He records 21 years with the company in October 1881 (i.e. c1860) and 5 years as a signalman at that date (i.e. started as a signalman in 1876) There is a possibility that was a fireman c.1865 and went on to be a fitter (c.1871) and foreman fitter (c.1872). This may have been a different person but the place & year of birth is the same.
