Llai, or Llay in English, is a community of around four thousand people located four miles North of Wrexham in North Wales. The original village was built in the 1920s for the mineworkers at Llay Main Colliery but we can trace our history much further back in time. 

If you are, or were from the village we hope you will find lots of interest in these pages. 

If your family lived in the area then this website will help to tell their story.
