Hi

New to the forum, competent diy'er (have added sockets to ring not spurs and added additional lights - know I shouldn't but...) and looking for clarity on wires at a light fitting for a bathroom light and extractor fan.

Changing the bathroom light and didn't take notice of the connections (fool!). I have the usual feed in and out to next light but then there is a switch cable with 1.5mm 3 core & E. From the switch the red permanent live connects from common to the in/out live (red) at the ceiling rose - no problem. In the switch there is then a few yellow wires in L1, one of which goes to the ceiling rose which I believe is going to be switched live.

The query then involves the neutral wires (black). In the light switch back box the switch cable black is block connected to another black wire but is not connected to the switch.

There is a link cable from the light switch to the fan isolator which is directly next to the light switch and I think this is where the other black in the block comes from. There is another cable which is 1mm not sure of cores and not sure what it does but it doesn't go to the bathroom light rose.

So the question is...at the rose do I still connect the switch neutral (black) wire (that is block joined in the back box) to the other 2 neutrals (feed in & out)? Then it is just a case of light neutral to these 3 and light live to the yellow?

Any help appreciated, cheers.
