For this page we are indebted to a reader of this site, Helen, who sent me these images of an old booklet.
Entitled, somewhat obscurely, 'We Shall Meet on a Beautiful Shore', this is the personal story - written by himself - of Thomas Powell Roberts , who lived much of his life in institutions, including Ruthin Workhouse, but became a respected and familiar local character, still remembered by some older residents of Ruthin. It's an easy and fascinating read!
I hope I am not infringing copyright by posting this - the booklet is long out of print.
