John “and his wife Eunice kept a draper's shop in High Street, Dover, for many years before the 2nd World War. Members of the family staying at Beach Crest always made a point of buying something in their shop. Bert was very fond of music but of somewhat limited tastes; he loved Handel and Haydn but could not see much in Bach or Mozart. At the beginning of the War they had to give up the shop as it did not pay and, in late middle age, Bert managed to obtain an uncongenial clerical job in the post office in Birmingham, where they lived in unsatisfactory lodgings. Eunice died suddenly of a stroke in May 1941, leaving Bert all alone in a strange land. However, in December 1943 he married Anne Sumner, the supervisor in the post office where he worked. They lived at Sparkbrook and he died four years later.” — Frank Middlemiss’s online notes

Son: Ernest Jones (born 1884 Leyton, Essex )   View NotesHide notes  

“Ernest Jones lost his job and his home and he and his wife lived in a hotel room while looking for lodgings. After a hard day's searching they came back to their hotel room and sat on the floor exhausted and she died in his arms. He died soon afterwards.” — Frank Middlemiss’s online notes
