    Noticing a few pointers about the Census extract:
    1) Boys listed before the girls, irrespective of ages. Normal at that time. How times have changed for the better!
    2) Despite Elizabeth being bilingual, her children spoke only English, quite typical of Rhyl. I suffered a similar fate, growing up in an English-only speakeing household, despite both my parents being bilingual (though I’m now a fluent Welsh speaker, after long years of post-retirment adult learning!)
    3) I love the job descriptions, of their time, to be found on old Census pages like this “Bottler” “Shop Boy” etc.
