Member of the ARP/Civil Defence Services - stretcher bearer.

Andrew Behan has kindly provided this research: Arthur James Jones was born on 16 April 1893. 

Electoral registers from 1931 onward show that he was living at 84 Culloden Street, Poplar and the 1939 England and Wales Register confirms he was still living at this address as a single man whose occupation was recorded as a General Labourer (Heavy). 

He was an A.R.P. Stretcher Bearer who died, aged 47 years, on 18 September 1940 when a high explosive bomb fell on Saunders Ness Road School, Isle of Dogs, London, E.14, that was being used as Auxiliary Fire Service Sub Station No.35U. He is also commemorated in the Civilian War Dead Roll of Honour, located near St. George's Chapel in Westminster Abbey.
