    Is there a website for Electoral Rolls for Swansea covering the period after the end of World War 1?

    Not as far as I am aware, Colin. However, the West Glamorgan Archives have them and an email to them might bear fruit.

    While I am waiting for a response, possibly someone may be able to assist me in filling in some blanks.

    My problem is with my wife's grandparents - Thomas Frederick and Florence Mary Jones [maiden name Thomas].

    Thomas Frederick

    1911 census - Thomas and Florence are living at 94 Rhyddings Terrace, Brynmill, Swansea. Occupation was Engineer

    1938 Return from Canada - Residence to where Thomas was returning was 10 Gwdyr Crescent, Swansea. Occupation was Engineer.

    c.1948 Left for Canada - exact date not found, but appears to have intended to stay with his married son in Alberta.

    6 July 1951 - Thomas died in Edmonton, Alberta.

    Florence Mary

    1930 residence - 16 Gwdyr Crescent, Swansea

    12 September 1951 - died at 10 Gwdyr Crescent.

    I am attempting to trace movement of this couple between the various dates.

    I have had some good success with Electoral Registers from Leeds Archives. They charged me for the copies but made no charge for the look up. I wanted copies of the Electoral Registers for a specific address in Leeds from 1916 to 1926 and they supplied copies of the lot. These enabled me to "prove" the parentage of an illegitimate child born at that address.

    All the best,

    Are you sure electoral registers are what you want? The registers will tell you whether or not an adult is at a specified address. If he or she isn't there, the registers will not tell you the new address.

    I think so, Peter G.

    I know where they were at various times after the 1920's and want to find when they moved house.

    Is there another way?
