John M Jones

It was with great sadness that the choir learned of the sudden death of Bass chorister John M Jones on Wednesday 16th May 2012 at his home in Bristol.


To quote Siân, and endorsed by us all, “John was a real character; a talented,  loyal and devoted chorister.  He will be missed by us all”


Our sincere regrets and sympathy go out to his wife Joy and family at this very sad and distressing time.  Our thoughts are with you.


The choir was also saddened to learn that on the same day, ex-tenor Doug Harris also died.  Our thoughts are also with Doug and his family at this distressing time.
