Back to the first post.  He died of wounds at Etaples (not Estables) the location of a large number of military hospitals in the Great War.  His Commonwealth War Grave Commission details are here;
https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/502801/jones,-/

War memorials were organised by local committees of the great and the good who, typically, would advertise for relatives to come forward with names for inclusion and use other ways of spreading the word, some effective, some not so effective.  As he isn't on the local memorial is seems they just didn't catch up with him via whoever was still local.

It is with great difficulty I share with you that in the early hours of 07 August 2021, Maximilian passed away unexpectedly but peacefully.

With deep sadness,

Given that he was born in Malpas, I wonder if he's listed on the war memorial there  :-\

Added - Link - close text  is/making my eyes water but I don't see him listed:

His service record also states he died 28/10/16 at no. 4 General Hospital Camiers.
He became "dangerously ill" on the 27th.
However next to his entry when he was wounded on 26/9/16 it says DIED which appears incorrect but has been taken as his date of death.

Hello
I am new to this site. my partner is the great grandson of William Jones 28320.
Jessie Jones was my partners mum's mum. And is the only living child of Jessie. We have been trying to find more information for her. Especially where he was born, she was brought up to know he was born on Scotland but research we have done has brought up that he was born in Malpas.
William appears on two cenotaph's cenf Mawr which is where his mum has always visited and we recently discovered he is also on the one on Ruabon too. We have established where he was in the war and his injuries etc
If anyone has any further information we would be forever grateful.
