No.74 where Ruth Ellis (nee Neilson) was born in 1926; she was the last woman to be hanged for murder in the UK.
Ruth Ellis’ connection with Rhyl does not extend far beyond that.
Her father was a musician and moved around to wherever some work was likely to be found. In the early 1940s the family was in London; Ruth tried various jobs and ended up a night club hostess.
The how and why she shot and killed her lover David Blakely and
was executed in 1955 at the age of 28, can be traced in various publications and the film Dance with a Stranger starring Miranda Richardson and Rupert Everett directed by Mike Newell (1985).
