Jeff, a lot of records are not always factually correct as the spelling on the original forms may have been read incorrectly due to bad handwriting.
Take for example Barrog and although I am from North Wales I have never heard this name.   I have however heard of Carrog which is in that locality but perhaps some other forum members may have heard of Barrog.
Likewise with the figures 25 and 26 bad handwriting may account for the date but without doing some searches myself at the Archives then I can't make an educated guess as to whether this is your Robert or not

There are rumors, that llandudno scenes could be scrapped due to continuity, as some local actors and extras cannot travel to South Wales....... ?
Most of the portacabins and equipment have gone, just two vehicles left.   what a lost opportunity, especially as it was a local film companies production.

Mr M and I had a lovely lunch at Westshore cafe yesterday, he had Haddock Chowder and crusty bread which was delicious and I had GF chocolate cake which was equally delicious and very reasonably priced. While we were there we watched various cast members picking up their lunch from the catering tent and what fantastic outfits and hats the ladies had on. A while later some cars arrived from the 1930/40 era. Sad to hear that filming won't be continuing on the pier and will continue down in South Wales, as I'm sure when the scenery would have been viewed later while watching the film it would have encouraged people to visit the area  :-\

Politics & Current Affairs / Very Expensive Mistake
« Last post by Meleri on Today at 03:40:31 PM »
At Llandudno Magistrates Court yesterday a man from Pensarn Abergele was fined in his absence £220 plus £150 legal costs, £114.14 investigative costs and £30 victim surcharge. The offence took place on Pensarn Beach where the man allowed his dog off the lead and it did the business. On seeing this a Conwy enforcement officer approached the offender to offer a dog poo bag and hoped to give educational advice, but the man ran away to his car and drove off. One very expensive mistake of £514.14, I hope this irresponsible anti-social individual won't make again  >:(

Why Eddie Izzard was in North Wales today...but won't be shooting his new movie on historic pier as planned.

Adam Williams, managing director of Tir Prince Leisure Group, which owns the pier, described the situation as a “huge shame”.
“At no point has this been a monetary issue. In fact, we were willing to lose money just to hold the filming."

“But coming up to the latter stages of last week when we were chasing the contract, it became apparent that some of the things they wanted to do, which weren’t disclosed at the start, would need to have been managed by us or not done at all.

Reading those blog posts, it would seem likely that the Glynliffon project will implode at some point.

I'd agree with Jacothenorth that Wales has a long history of scammers entrepreneurs coming here from England and lining their own pockets at the locals expense, often with the support of the Welsh Government. One wonders what the calibre of the staff employed by the Welsh Government is - "IQ need not be over 10 but must speak fluent Welsh'...
