Little is known of William Jones, other than he was born in Stockport (in the parish of St Thomas), was married to Alice and lived at 20 Hindley Street, Higher Hillgate. Available information suggests that her maiden name was Turner and they married between April and June 1910.

William was either a regular soldier or, more probably, an ex-regular who was recalled to the army, as a reservist when war was declared on 4 August. His war would be less than three weeks and you can read an account of the action in which he was killed here.
