“His end was Peace”
Also Annie Wall died Dec 16th 1928 aged 84 years
Jonas Crump (1860 – 3 April 1908)
Jonas was born in Kidderminster and baptised there on 31 March1861. He was the son of John Evans Crump (1839-) and Emma (1837-) and was 10 months old when the 1861 census was taken (which is at odds with him being 50 years old when he died in April 1908). His father was a grocer in Kidderminster (1871) who later ran the Wool Pack pub, Broad Street, Kidderminster, where Jonas worked as a brewer (1881). In 1891 he was still living at the Wool Pack with his parents, but was documented as a coal merchant. He married Ann Crump in 1900 and by 1901 the couple were running the Wool Pack Inn. They were still at the Wool Pack in 1904 and were recorded in the Kelly’s Directory of that year, but Jonas died at East View, 130 Tenison Road in April 1908. His funeral took place on 7 April.
Annie Wall (née Crump) (1844 – 16 December 1928)
Annie was born in Cirencester and aged 36 was lodging in Kidderminster (1881). She married Jonas when she was c.55 years old, and they were possibly related. After he died she lived alone at 8 Charles Street (1911) and then married for a second time to William T Wall in 1914. She died at Royston House, Royston and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 19 December.
