There were a lot of them and there still are today. To this day, her seventh child, David Jenkins, speaks of her extraordinary ability in keeping family and home together against all odds.

She worked unceasingly. He talks of the massive meals she prepared for them all, sitting her huge family around the kitchen table - it is the baking of her pies made from the wimberries which grew wild in the nearby hills that he remembers best. It is a marvel how she, with the help of her eldest daughter Cis, did it. Quite obviously the work load was enormous but there was never any lowering of standards; the house always shone, there was always enough to eat, the children were well turned out and the washing never ceased.
Even with that burden apparently she found time for all her children, each of them different, each of them talented in their varying ways.

Their father, Dic Bach, had a bit of the devil in him, he was a character, he told stories and he made them laugh. The children knew from an early age that he was not always going to be there for them, that he was unreliable, but he was their father and they loved him all the same. He was a bit different from the rest, he read books, he liked to play with long words and he had opinions he was happy to expound.
Their mother was their rock, she was beautiful, she was their inspiration and was the one who would always be there to come home to. Five days after giving birth to her thirteenth child she died. The loss of their mother devastated the family and Dic Bach who had worshipped her would never be the same. They say he never looked at another woman. For a start there were all those children to be looked after - Tom and Cis were married - but at home there was Ifor who would take control, Will, Verdun, David, Hilda, Edie, Cassie, Rich, and the new baby.
But first things first. It was decided that Tom would take Graham, the baby, and Cis would take Rich aged two, a hefty and lively little boy who would cry whenever his mother left him.
It was a decision made without hesitation for Cis, though it was probably very difficult for her husband, Elfed, to accept as he had been told by her that she did not want to have children of her own. He hoped she would change her mind, which in time she did, but then she felt she had had quite enough of children at home where she had helped her mother take care of the regularly growing family. Cis had despaired for her mother as she watched her wear herself out and at times she actively disliked her father for it. Babies, babies and more babies. Work, work and more work. Cis had never really received a proper education because of relentless demands of home and children.
So Rich was taken from the secure world of Pontrhydyfen to the unknown territory of Caradoc Street, Taibach, a few miles down the road. Now only a few minutes in a car but then, if you happened to be two and spoke only in Welsh, the distance was monumental. Cis and Rich travelled that distance time and time again. Sometimes quite unknown to Elfed.
Edith had handed down her housekeeping skills to Cis who now used them in her own house and at the family home in Pontrhydyfen. To and fro they went, with an old suitcase full of washing, collecting and delivering. One time the catch broke and the much used suitcase burst open in front of a bus queue.
