Mr Stanley R. Jones FSA
We are sorry to learn of the death of Stanley Jones on 9th July 2017 following ill health. Stanley undertook illustrative recording of numerous older buildings near to Lincoln Cathedral and elsewhere in the city. Most of these were published in the four volumes of The Survey of Ancient Houses or in Steep, Strait and High. He was a member of The Survey of Ancient Houses group and became a long-standing member of The Survey of Lincoln. 

Stanley's funeral will be held at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium on Monday 31 July at 2.45pm. The postcode is S8 0HN. If you expect to attend, please could you email solsecretary@gmail.com by Monday July 24th. 

Some appreciations:
I, like many of us, have enjoyed many pleasant times in his company and drawn on his considerable knowledge of buildings in Lincoln. His expertise was invaluable when I was Heritage Team Leader at City of Lincoln Council, especially on those buildings where Listed Building consent was required and I was advising owners and developers on their pending applications, in particular, if they appeared in his ‘blue books’ (Survey of Ancient Houses). He, as with Tom Baker and Richard and Mary Lucas, now leave a legacy but a big hole in expertise in their fields of knowledge that was accessible to so many. At least with the publication of Steep, Strait and High (and the preceding four publications), we have that knowledge in print. - AW.

Stanley was a great man, all the more so for being so modest. - MJ
