Re: Morriston History

Hello Catherine

Are you still interested in the Hanney Band?

I bought a job lot of THE MORRISTON OTHER TIMES Community Newspaper at a sale held at Swansea Museum in October but have only just got around to reading through them. Having noticed your email on the Forum a couple of days ago, I wondered if you would like a copy of an article entitled The Famous Hanney Band, written by Mrs Marjorie Uren, which appeared in the paper in the late 70’s/early 80’s. It has five photos as well as the text. It is 2 x A3 sheets, so it is too big for my scanner. However, if you would like a copy, I would be happy to get it photocopied and put it in the post for you.

Regards Jane

Re: Morriston History

Hi Jane, I would definitely be interested in that! Please could you send a copy of the article to me? I'd be very grateful. Is there a way I can send a private message to you with my address? Thank you! Poppy

Re: Morriston History

Hi Melanie, If memory serves me right weren't the Hanneys Salvation Army members in Morriston I don't have much information, but if every little bit helps then this is what I have, From 1964 I was Musical Director of the Clydach Amateur Operatic Society and the trombone Player in the Morgan Lloyd Orchestra was a Mr Hanney (same family) I don't know his Christian name, sorry.

Re: Morriston History

Hi all. I would love to see more photos of the Hanney family band, and Hanney family generally. I recently found a small article and a couple of pictures in the clanhanney newsletter - it includes a picture of the Hanney band with George Hanney and a picture of his funeral procession.

If anyone has found more info and pics please share the link!
Thanks

Also, for those of you with ancestry access, there is a post with photos on a message board from a Hanney descendant with more photos, including small annotations of names. https://www.ancestry.com/boards/surnames.hanney/95/mb.ashx
