Is this one example the only evidence for "the survival of geminate [ll] in the St. Ives dialect of Anglo-Cornish well into the 20th century" (Bock 2010: 3)? Or is there further evidence?
Ol an gwella (or should that be gwelha?)

I must have mentioned the late Cecil Roberts of Sennen Cove, who would pronounce the LL of "Scilly' as though he were saying "still life". Dick Gendall heard and noted him, too. Terry George, also of Sennen Cove and the former lifeboat cox'n, pronounces "enys" (as in Enys Dodnan) as "ain-ez" ("ai" as in "air").
