Please remove your telephone number before the whole of your post is reported and removed.
It is against the terms and conditions of the site,
I will copy over your message for now.
You need to give some places and dates.
As you can imagine, there are many John Jones.
What is your connection to him?

And when?

What have you done yourself to try to locate him?


Reggie Report 30 Mar 2013 15:33

Didn't your read the info above the board?

Please do not include addresses, email addresses or telephone numbers.


Muriel Report 30 Mar 2013 15:57

Numbers removed, Sorry,
the last time I see John was on the day of his dads (William Jones) funeral, in 1960. in Upper Sapey, Worcestershire,(I know the name of the farm but not sure if I can mention it on here)
John and his brother Clifford went into care shortly after this, we have not seen him since.

I think John would have been born between 1945 - 1950

I will see if I can find more info at a bereavement meeting tonight, hence the reason we are trying to trace him

I am Johns cousin

I have looked on the site but found nothing, maybe John is his second name, I have only known him as John

Do you know if it was this death?

William A Jones
Birth Date: abt 1909
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1960
Age at Death: 51
Registration district: Worcester
Inferred County: Worcestershire
Volume: 9d
Page: 240

Do you have any birth years and places for the other children, place of parents' marriage, or what happened to Doreen?


Muriel Report 30 Mar 2013 16:43

not sure but could be

Wallace C - 1932
Patricia Mary - 1936
William E - 1939
Irene Gloria - 1941
Peter B - 1943
not 100% on this one but I think it is Clifford G - 1947

Parents married - 1932 at Ross Herefordshire Jan-Feb-Mar
Volume Number 6A
Volume Page 871

Mothers maiden name Minton

Births Dec 1947
Jones Clifford G Minton Kidderminster

There is not an obvious birth for John, and not even anything promising for 'J' as a middle name.

As Clifford was born in Kidderminster, could John have been born elsewhere?

Is this Doreen's birth?
Births Dec 1908
Minton Myra Dorreen Hereford 6a 441

I am told John's DOB is 13th Oct 1946

The only one I can find is

John R Jones kidderminster Worcestershire MMN Mitton
Volume Number 9D
Volume Page 169

So maybe the name was spelt wrong


patchem Report 31 Mar 2013 21:51

The birth Mother's maiden name for John might be a mistake, you would have to get the birth certificate to find out.

However, there are Jones/Mitton marriages and births, including 2 for boys named John:
Births Dec 1946
Jones John R Mitton Kidderminster 9d 169
Births Dec 1951
JONES John W MITTON Kidderminster 9d 137

I would want to know what the R stands for, anyway.


Muriel Report 1 Apr 2013 14:57

Will try and see if I can find out what the R stands for


Muriel Report 1 Apr 2013 18:18

We are thinking Richard or Raymond but not yet 100%


Muriel Report 10 Jun 2013 00:06

Just found out it is John Richard Jones and he was born 13th Oct 1946, his last known whereabouts was Southampton
