The date is either 1945 or 1946
It was sent in by Gareth Edwards
His Mother is first on the left second row. Name Annie J Roberts (Edwards) born in Crown Street Caernarfon.
His Grandfather is seated (wearing uniform) second from the left, his name was William Roberts and he was a leading fire fighter in the Caernarfon brigade. His Grandmother Ellen Roberts ‘Nel Bach’ is standing on the right next to the dog (wearing a head scarf) and his aunt is standing three to the left of her (next to the girl in the white dress) Her name was Elinor Roberts (Williams) who late lived in the Wern, Felinheli with her husband John and her four sons, Terry, Haydn, Brian and Graham.
If you know some of the others please drop me an
E-Mail or Gareth.

Names sent in by Tom Holland Roberts:

Firemen, sitting,Left to Right: Alfie Bohanna, Will Roberts, Jim Parry, U/K, Frank Hitchinson (Chief Fire Officer), U/K, Sam Jones,
John Williams,Dafydd Williams, William Jones (Wil Dre). I think the young girl sitting in front of Jim Parry is his daughter.
The young girl sitting on Dafydd's lap is his youngest daughter Alvra and the bigger girl sitting between him and John is his elder daughter Sharon. Wil Dre was Thomas and Johnny (White Horse) father.
I think that either Father Christmas or the dark man would probably be Owen Jones (Hywel Painter) and Tommy Jones (Tommy Kings Head)
I know the names of some children but it is very difficult to place them.
