The burial service might have been in Ruabon, but the death was rego'ed in the Holt subdistrict of Wrexham RD, not the Ruabon subdistrict.

Deaths Jun 1939 (>99%)
Hughes John 71 Wrexham 11b 314

North Wales Death indexes for the years: 1939
Surname Forename(s) Age Sub-District Registers At Reference
HUGHES John - Holt Wrexham County Borough (Wrexham) HOLT/A02/72

We can check this since all the 1939q2 vol=11b p=314 names have the same local page ref.

Did you notice he was buried before his death (by your date).
