Looking at the number of cups & trophies displayed in front of the choristers it’s likely that this choir had competed successfully in many events over the years.
There were far more choristers in the 1936 Eisteddfod choir than this. Either J.M Lewellyn or W.M Llewellyn had a choir in Goodwick at one time, perhaps that was this smaller group preparing to compete in the 1936 Eisteddfod!
Despite it being almost 90 years ago, quite a few faces have been recognised but there are still a lot of gaps to be filled in !!!

It has been suggested that the location was in the vicarage garden in Dyffryn, Goodwick; Capt David Griffiths’ house “Gwyndy” can be seen in the background. Thanks to Peter Johns we now know that this is correct as he got in touch and left the following message.
“This is definitely the vicarage lawn in Dyffryn, Goodwick. I was born in the vicarage in 1953 and as a young boy would frequently jump over the wall into ‘Gwyndy’ to visit Captain and Mrs Griffiths. Captain Griffiths was Master of the ‘St Davids’ ferry which did the run to Southern Ireland. The flat ground that the choir are standing on was originally a tennis lawn”
