Lloyd Jones was born in Liverpool and before the War he worked at the Northallerton Dairy. He had trained at the Midland Dairy & Agricultural College at Kingston-on-Stour near Derby, before gaining his position at the dairy as a milk and cow tester.

He enlisted at Northallerton in the Yorkshire Regiment (No. 26242) before being posted to the York & Lancaster Regiment.

Nothing is known of the circumstances of his death but he is buried in the same cemetery as some of his comrades from Northallerton who were killed earlier in the War with the 4th Yorkshire Regiment near the infamous Hill 60 near Ypres.
