The probate index is the correct person. I didn't realise this was online, just found it, thanks for that.

There is death notice in the Liverpool Echo on March 5 1953 for a Thomas Jones who died 3 March. The funeral on 6 March at Woodchurch Road Welsh Chapel  and then interment at Landican Cemetery. His wife was Mary A and a son and daughter with names beginning with M.

Is this your Thomas?
Thank you, Gibel. Turns out he WAS buried at Landican Cemetery so this must be the reference you found although the details on dates and names were wrongly recorded for some reason.
Thanks everyone for your input. I am happy to report we now have all the details on the burial and even have photos of the grave. Thomas was very involved with the Woodlands Welsh Baptist Church, being treasurer and deacon for many years, but it does not have a burial ground.
