Seeking information

Bedwas RFC has received an email from a lady in South Australia hoping to trace her family tree. The email reads as follows:

“I realise this is a long shot but, I’m doing family research of my grandmother’s youngest brother Hananiah Rees born 21/9/1895 living at Fisherman’s Rest in Bedwas prior to attending Goldsmith College in London to train as a teacher. 

 However, he was called up for the first world war and died in 1918 with no body recovered, as his vessel SS T R Thimpson, was blown up, therefore no burial.”

If you can assist in any way please email me (Ian Lovell) on and I will pass on.

Thank you.
