    Edward Jones represented Liverpool City Police at tug-of-war and swimming throughout his career and received two awards for stopping runaway horses.
    On Wednesday 9th March 1921 he was the driver of SM No4 at Kildonon Rd. Whilst returning from a Sinn Fein fire (at Mr. Walter Cunningham's Gorse Hey Farm, Well Lane, Childwall) it proved difficult to climb an incline and Edward Jones reversed to try again but the machine ran back into a ditch and overturned. He was trapped under the ladders and died later in the Royal Infirmary of injuries received.
    He was 36 years old and reputedly the heaviest man in the Liverpool Fire Brigade at 18st.5lbs. He left a widow and children aged 8,4 and a baby of 6 weeks. The authorities arranged his funeral with a flag draped coffin bourne on a fire tender, muffled drums playing The Dead March in Saul, and the Last Post sounded over the grave. Following the coffin were Fire Brigade machines fron Liverpool, Bootle, Birkenhead and Manchester. He was buried in the Firemans grave in Smithdown Road Cemetery. His widow was granted an annual pension of 84 plus 16.18.0d for each child.
