CWGC Family Details
Family & Census Details James David Dallow was born in 1895, the son of Charles and Margaret Dallow. The 1901 Census show six year old James to be the second of four children - Annie E Dallow (7) was born a year before him and he had younger siblings William C Dallow (4) and Mary S M Dallow (2). Charles was originally from Hereford and Margaret from Crickhowell, all the children were born in Abercarn.

In 1911 the family were living at 42 Celynen Terrace in Newbridge. Charles and his two sons were all working as coal hewers in a local colliery whilst Mary was still at school. The family appear to have had a further son, Thomas, although the Census shows him as having died.

The family had a lodger called John Knight who also worked at the colliery but was a boiler stoker working above ground.
