Daniel was born in the Rhondda, South Wales and was part of a large family. His parents were William and Hannah Bella and at the time of the 1911 census they were living at 5 Turberville Row, Pennygrigg, Rhondda and Daniel was only 11 months old. He had an older brother and sister Harold and Lillian (possibly twins) and another brother Henry (b1908). Two brothers – Alfred (1912-1986) and Leslei (1914-1989) and three sisters – Charlice May (1916-2007), Beryl (1921-1991) and Dilys (1922-1991) – followed, meaning that the Daniel had eight brothers and sisters. His elder sister Lillian died in 1914.

Daniel married Ellen Elaine Jenkins in April 1938 and they had two children.

It is not known how Daniel and Ellen found their way to Warwick but it was possibly due to work as Daniel is listed in the 1939 Register, when he was staying at an address in Swansea, as being a ‘male attendant at Warwick and Coventry Mental Hospital.’
