Bus Service





J R Lloyd operated a service between Wrexham, Bwlchgwyn and Gwynfryn.  He also ran a work peoples service from his home village to Llay Main Colliery.

It appears that his first bus was a Guy ONDF which was bought new in 1931.  He then bought a mixture of buses mainly Bedfords and Dennis some new and others second hand.

In 1938, despite the fact that a new Dennis Lancet bus had been ordered, the firm sold out to Crosville in May of that year for a price of £9,500.  The fleet of 6 were transferred, The ordered Dennis, which had the registration number DFM127, was subsequently delivered in July of that year to Crosville becoming WA1 in their fleet.

The table below gives a list of all recorded vehicles known to have been with this operator.  I am indebted to David Donati for his dedicated work in compiling this data and enabling me to present it.

In the right hand column - where available - there is a link to a photograph of the vehicle.  The photo will open in a new window.  Links in CAPITAL LETTERS suggest the vehicle is seen when with the operator.

The column 'Pre HISTORY' shows information about the vehicle before joining the fleet including any re-registrations.  The column 'Post HISTORY' shows information about when the vehicle left the fleet and any known information of the subsequent history after the vehicle left the fleet.

For those who would wish to see the chassis and body numbers - these are to be found on the right hand side of the table below. You may need to scroll to the bottom of the page and then scroll the page to the right.

Any suggested corrections or comments would be very welcome - please contact me using the 'how to contact me page'
