In February 1918, the Malvern News reported: “The numerous friends of Pte C E Jines (the younger son of Mrs C Jines, late of Redland Road, Malvern Link) will regret to learn of his death at Coventry Hospital on the 16th February, which resulted from wounds received in France. He was buried with military honours at Lodge Hill Cemy, Birmingham.”

Five months later, after Mrs Jines had moved to 4 St Martins Place, Broad St, Birmingham, she heard the news that her third son Pte Roland Jines, Gloucestershire Regiment, had been gassed and was being treated in a French hospital. He survived the war, along with a younger brother Frank, who had been wounded in February 1918.
