Notes for Edward Wells
Edward Wells was just over three feet tall and spent his days watching gas pipes being laid in Llanelli.  He became such an expert on their location that he was known as Willy-bach-gas. According to the newspapers of the time, as a child caution had to be exercised on his behalf "lest some enterprising itinerant showman kidnapped him”.    He’s buried in Adulam Cemetery in Felinfoel.
