Born 16/3/1892 in 51 Meeson Road, West Ham, and baptized 30/10/1892 in All Saints, West Ham. Richard Joseph died at 1 a.m. on 10/3/1962 at 9 Highcroft Avenue, Cathcart, Glasgow, age 69. Cause of death Carcinoma of the colon, certified by J. Maguire, LRCPS. His death was registered by William McVey of 37 Midcroft Avenue, Glasgow who was described as a friend. Occupation: Railway Clerk, Glasgow Central station. On 15/10/1921 when Richard Joseph was age 29, he married Mabel Thomasine DALLADAY , daughter of Thomas DALLADAY , a shoemaker, in St Swithin’s Church, Hither Green, London. Mabel Thomasine was born about 1896 in Woolwich and died at 7:30 a.m. on 18/10/1963 at 7 Highcroft Avenue, Cathcart, Glasgow, age 67. Cause of death Arteriosclerosis, coronary thrombosis, certified by M. Forbes MB. Mabel’s death was also registered by William McVey. Richard and Mabel had no children. 11. Herbert Henry JONES [ Parents ]. Born 26/9/1895 at 51 Meeson Road, West Ham, and baptized 7/2/1897 in All Saints, West Ham. Herbert Henry died 27/6/1942 in the City Hospital, St Albans, age 46. Cause of death certified as Peritonitis, perforated ulcer, intestinal obstruction. Herbert was buried in Hatfield Road cemetery, St Albans.  Occupation: Ironmonger’s assistant (1911); Commercial traveller (1922); Meter reader for electricity company (1942). Served in France 9/3/1915-19/3/1919 (Royal Engineers). The birth certificate records Herbert Henry.  His marriage and death certificates, and cemetery record, show Henry Herbert. The reason for the switch is unknown; perhaps he simply preferred Henry to Herbert. There’s another possible explanation. Herbert's aunt, Jane Elizabeth Jones married Henry Harris. His brother (so Jane's brother in law), born about 1868, was Herbert Harris. There’s evidence in the 1901 census that Herbert Jones was brought up by Jane and Henry after his mother died. He may have been known as Henry to avoid confusion with Herbert Harris. In addition, Henry Harris had a nephew, Herbert Leslie Harris, born 1900. Maybe it was a case of one too many Herberts. On 11/2/1922 when Herbert Henry was age 26, he married Doris Esther HARRIS , daughter of Frederick George HARRIS and Esther Rose BURRIDGE , in Holy Trinity Church, Penge. Born on 1/8/1892 in St Albans, Doris Esther died 7/1/1968 in Peacehaven, Sussex, age 75. They had the following children: (1) Betty Doris [ 13 ] . (2). Peter Leslie [ 14 ] . And one who is still living.
