Corrections to 'Rhosneigr - Then & Now'

I feel it is important for the corrections to be included with every copy of the book, and would encourage book owners to print off a copy of this page and include it in the back of their own copy.

The following corrections are those I know about, if you know of any others, Please contact me, and I will amend this document.

Errors and Mistakes in something that purports to be a factual History book are irritating, frustrating, annoying and can be hurtful. If you have been affected by these inadvertent errors or mistakes, I sincerely apologise and hope you will forgive me.
