    OK, he is commemorated on the plaque in St. Edwards Church, Knighton. He was killed in WW1, which means he's dead. Done my bit :D

    I know, good in'it :) but where on earth do you start? He could have joined any place, any regiment. I have one from Knighton who joined up in south Wales and was in the Devonshire battalion. Lucky his CWGC included his parents from Knighton.

    Well there are 29 H Jones on 1911 census in the Knighton reg. district. including those with H as the second initial.
    If you take any born 1900 or after as too young that takes off 10
    5 were born before 1880 (so might be too old to serve)
    So that leaves 14 - that is if he was in Knighton in 1911.

    I take it no year of death is recorded.

    On the roll of honour site it says nothing at all for him. In the church it just says 1914-1918
