In July 2004, I have had contact with Clifford Sweet about his Sweets in Wales.  He has sent a photo of his grandparents, Edward &
Annie Sweet, taken in Aberdare in September 1942.  He also sends more information about the family:    Thank you to Clifford for sharing this information.  

After the 1901 census, five more children were born:
Emily born Aberdare
Ronald born in Merriott in 1905 (Clifford’s father) – the family returned to Merriott for a short while.
Hilda born Aberdare.
Herbert born Aberdare 1915
Iris born Aberdare 1917
Clifford tells me that Edward died in Aberdare in 1953 and Annie died in 1954 in London.
