I'm sorry Chad but there is no news on the Jones Bros.   It's not appropriate at the moment to contact them but it may be in the future

I'm waiting to hear from someone who knew Pierce Jones  (the Grandson of Pierce Jones)  but I'll have to wait until he contacts me,  Any info I do get will be put on here.

Hello! I have missing in action for quite sometime and I apologize. Hope y'all are doing well. I was working on the Kirk side and now after a lot of frustration decided to flip back over to the Jones side. Anything exciting lately? I am back at trying to find the missing grave of Annie Maria Kirk.

Hi Chad, good to hear from you and hope that you are keeping well over there in the USA.

It has been quiet on the Jones front and I've not heard anything about the Jones side of the family who are in touch with someone else from the States.    I've recently had contact with my friend who knows the Jones family and I'll see him in the pub sometime and ask him about the Jones'.

I can't help you to find the grave of Annie Maria as I've already had a look at the Burial Indexes for Llandudno.   They only show graves with headstones anyway so if Annie didn't have a headstone then she wouldn't be in it.
I've also looked at Billion Dollar graves but again Annie does not appear there.     Her death was recorded in the September quarter of 1909  at Solihull in the West Midlands so yesterday I looked at some of the Cemetery records for Solihull but without any luck.
There has got to be a record of the burial and the most likely place to have it must be Solihull but where do you start looking for it?

It might be worth looking at the Solihull Heritage Forum as I read about someone in the same position as yourself looking for a grave.
I've attached the link for you and hope that you can get the answer you are looking for and in the meantime if I do hear anything about the Jones then I'll post it on here.

I forgot to mention that I've also looked at British Newspapers Online in case there was an article in one of the papers for 1909 but unfortunately I couldn't see anything for Annie Maria

Hi Hugo, or any one else.
Can you help me out on this ?

You gave a website for Military Service history on your post October 14th 4.59 pm.
I have tried to get into this looking for Grace Ellen's husband.
John Jones, Corporal, Royal Engineers, 1916/1917 to 1920. served out in Egypt/Middle East.
Website keeps going blank on me.

Hi Mull, hope that you are both keeping well up there on the island.

I'm sorry for not replying sooner but I've had a few things on, but today I've had a look at that link .
Just as a matter of interest there were 13,946 John Jones' serving in World War 1
Of these 919 John Jones were serving in the Royal Engineers and there were many Corporals listed
Do you know the Service Number of your Taid?
I've attached that link below

Thanks Hugo.

All good up here just wish the weather was better. Been trying to get a job done in the garden and it is taking longer than I thought.

When I get a chance I will go though the papers again but I don't remember seeing Taids service number. Have a date for his attestment if that will help. John jones name was very popular.

Hi Mull,   I'm not sure if I can help you on this as I don't know whether the date of attestment may help. 
There are some experts on here who if they read this may be able to tell you or suggest something else
Otherwise it'll have to wait until you get chance to go through the papers again

Hi Helig and Hugo hope you are keeping well in this stormy weather.

I wonder if you can help me with this one ?
Grace Ellen brother Richard Benjamin Jones and his wife Jane, 8 Howard Place Llandudno had a daughter Doris, would have been born about 1925.
a relative informed me many years ago that she was adopted. Is it possible to confirm this and any other details ?

Hi Mull,  I have had a look on the 1939 Register for 8 Howard Place Llandudno & there is only Richarb B Jones born 10/7/1890 Occupation Postman at the GPO & Elizabeth J Jones born 29/12/1887 no sign of Doris who would have been about 14 at that time.

Thanks for that Meleri.  It might confirm what I was told.

I know that in the 1950s she trained to be a nurse and worked in a Chester Hospital.
In the late 1950s she married a Maurice Evans.

There is a possibility that although Doris was only about 14 at the time of the 1939 Census she may have been working and living elsewhere but more likely to be in the local area.
If she was Baptised then there may be more info to help, such as an additional Christian name.

Mull,  just an afterthought but do you know the maiden name of Jane as it may help in the search for the birth of Doris.     There is only one Doris Jones registered in the Conway District in 1925 and she was registered in the June quarter, the mother's maiden name was Parry.

I've just done a very quick search and the only record I am able to find of a marriage between Benjamin Jones and a female called Parry was in Holywell in the December quarter of 1926.   Is this your Benjamin?

There was a birth of a Doris Jones registered in the Conway District in the September quarter of 1927 but the mother's maiden name was Davies

Hi Hugo,
I think we can rule out the Holywell connection. their Golden Wedding was in the 1960s.
Will see if I can find her maiden name.
If you remember Pierce Jones had a big Family ( 10 ). May be worth looking at any offspring from them ???
