Wesley Jones was a shunter and lived in Washington House with his parents, Mr and Mrs John Jones. He had worked for the L. and N.E. Railway for many years. Twelve months prior to his death he was transferred to the Nottingham district. There, he had an accident which resulted in his leg having to be amputated. He was brought home several weeks before he died, having been a patient at Nottingham General Hospital.


His funeral card read:


In Loving Memory of Charles Wesley Jones

Who entered into rest, April 14th 1931

Aged 30 years.

And was interred in Saint John's Churchyard, Penymynydd,

April 18th.


When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of Glory died

My richest gain I count but loss

And pour contempt on all my pride.


Washington House, Buckley
