1911 Living at Westcotes Drive, Leicester: Alfred Arthur Jones (age 40 born Leicester), Importer and Machine Tool Manufacturer - Employer. With his wife Ellen Jones (age 28 born Leicester). One servant. Married nine years and no children.
The Late Mr. A. A. Jones.—It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of Mr. A. A. Jones, which took place at his residence, “Brooksby,” Uppingham-road, Leicester, on Tuesday, August 23, at the age of fifty-six.
Mr. Jones’ connection with the machine-tool trade extended over a period of more than thirty years, during which time he was instrumental in establishing the company of Messrs. A. A. Jones and Shipman, Limited, Leicester, of which he was a managing director from its formation. We understand that it is the intention of the Board to carry on the business as hitherto.
