Albert Jeffrey Cartwright (known as Bertie), born in Bronington, Flintshire, Wales on 29 October 1890, the first son of Esther Humphreys (his birth certificate indicates no father’s name). The 1891 and 1901 Censuses show Albert as the son of Elias and Ann Cartwright of Hanmer Road, Tybroughton, Flintshire, Wales. We can only assume that the Cartwright’s ‘adopted’ Albert who assumed their name at some point after 1901. The first adoption laws were introduced into the UK in 1926.

  1. Albert is my great great Uncle and I have research he’d his story which I am happy to share. He has an unusual memorial in a bus shelter.

    • Hi Claire
      We would be very interested in your research. Is he the chap commemorated at Eglwys Cross ? One of our Volunteers, Simon Birch, was involved in the memorial.
      Look forward to hearing from you
      Regards
