You have got to start the ball rolling
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
Ooooh so much useful information
There are just 43 pages of H Jones on the CWGC site (WW1)
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
Separate names with a comma.
