I see from today's South Wales Argus that Kathleen Couzens (nee Jones), the last surviving Granddaughter of Private John Williams (Fielding) VC has died, aged 98.

She died in Leamington Spa on 18th August and her funeral was held at Leamington Crematorium. A Memorial family service will take place at our Lady of the Angels RC Church, Cwmbran tomorrow, and the service will be followed by the interment of her ashes at the family grave in Cwmbran Cemetery.

More details here: http://www.southwalesargus.co.uk/news/13655538.Last_surviving_granddaughter_of_Rorke___s_Drift_hero_to_be_remembered_at_Cwmbran_service/

I would like to pass on my sympathy to the family at this time.

Hi all, indeed a sad moment but I do believe that there are still two other grand-daughters in the midlands. My aunts Hilary and Olive are daughters of John Fielding's son William, and are two of the seven sisters of my father, also named William. I haven't had any contact with either aunt for some time, but am sure we would have been told of any passing.
Sincere best wishes to Kathleen's close family.

Best regards, Colin Fielding.
