From the Flintshire Observer, September 30, 1915

Private D. W. Jones (Buckley), l/5th Royal Welch Fusiliers, succumbed to dysentery on August 31st. A letter has been received from the matron of the hospital ship on which he died, stating He came on this boat suffering from dysentery. He grew; weaker and weaker in spite of all we could do, and passed peacefully away on August 31st at 7-15 p.m. I cannot tell you how grieved we all were—he was so good a patient. You will hear, of course, from the War Office, but I felt I must write to tell you, and also express a little of our sympathy in the loss of a life laid down for his King and country.” Prior to the war Private Jones was employed by the London and North-Western Railway Company
