Myron's father was a coal miner, bronze, silver and gold medals of the Mines' Rescue Service. His mother was the daughter of a coal miner, Thomas Elim Havard Jones, Head Deacon of Elim Welsh Baptist Chapel, Craig-Cefn-Parc, descending from an eleventh century Norman family, the Havard or Harvard family.
