Abertillery old photos wanted

Welcome to Abertillery online - Croeso i Abertyleri ar y we:
"There was now pandemonium in the town as the news spread. Harold Jones was sent for trial, again at Monmouth, and this time he confessed.
Remarkably he also gave a second statement, although not read in court, in which he also admitted the murder of Freda Burnell.
Jones was still under 16 by a mere two months and so escaped the hangman's noose by virtue only of his age. He gave the reasons for the murders as a 'desire to kill'. His incarceration removed him from the streets of Abertillery though it is claimed by some that he was to return on several occasions in later years."
