Administrative/Biographical history: Charles Jones & Sons Ltd, timber merchants, of Kinmel Bay, near Rhyl, Flintshire, was probably established in the early 20th century. About 1950, following the death of the owner, his widow, Gwen Jones, and stepson, Mick Smith Jones, took over the running of the business. The company went into decline, and by 1978 was on the verge of bankruptcy. It was bought by Sir Alfred McAlpine, and Henry L. Griffiths was appointed chairman. The business continued until 1986, when it was concluded that the site was unsuitable for expansion. The site was sold to Rhuddlan Borough Council in 1986-7, and the company was merged with a similar company within the McAlpine Group.
