In the early 1900s, Aaron and Margaret Jones lived in Northop Hall where Aaron ran his own garage business. Their daughter, Gertrude was born in 1910 and their first born son, William was born in 1911 but sadly only survived for 20 days. In 1917 along came another son who was named Willie. Willie was known locally as ‘Willie Aaron’ a reference to his father. When he grew up and before he joined the army, Willie worked as a driver for his father.
Many, many thanks to Willie’s niece Gina for generously sharing his story with us.
