Death notes The Harry Jones whose death is recorded above is the one whom we assume to be the correct person, but only on the basis that he was the only one to die close to his Derbyshire home, where we know he remained close to.  We do acknowledge that that is not the entire basis for accuracy and accept cautionary notes. Other Harry Jones' that died of the correct age were ranging from Salford in 1931, to a Leeds' death in 1977.
Height/Weight 5' 9½", 12st. 7lbs [1919].
