World War One Memorial Plaque To Sub-Lieut Henry Cyril Aldum Jauncey. Royal Navy, Killed in Action at the Battle of Jutland

World War One Memorial Plaque
Henry Cyril Aldum Jauncey.

Henry Cyril Aldum Jauncey was born in Bolton on 30 December 1895
He was the son of of Henry John and Charlotte Cosham Jauncey.
His father, the Rev Henry John Jauncey, was Vicar of The Saviour’s Church, Bolton.
His mother, Charlotte Cosham Aldum, was his father's second wife and died in 1897.
His father married a third time in 1904.
Cyril attended BCIS in Forms I to IV from 7 April 1904 to 8 April 1909 He moved to Uppingham School, Rutland from Summer 1909.

Cyril had chosen a career in the Royal Navy well before the War, training on HMS Conway at Liverpool from the age of 16.
He joined the Navy proper at the outbreak of War and was rapidly commissioned as a Sub-Lieutenant.

He was killed during the Battle of Jutland, which was easily - in terms of men and ships lost - the most costly engagement the Royal Navy ever took part in. Over 6000 men were killed on the British side alone during a few hours of fighting.

Cyril's ship, the Minotaur class armoured cruiser HMS Defence, fought gallantly but suffered several direct hits and exploded. There were no survivors from a crew of around 900.
He is memorialized on his parents' grave at St Mary the Virgin, Deane, Bolton and on the list from The Saviour Church, now incorporated into the Emmanuel Church War Memorial.

BOLTON CASUALTIES IN NAVAL BATTLE

Amongst the Bolton men who went down in the great naval battle Jutland was Sub-Lieut. Henry Cyril Aldum Jauncey, the only son of the Rev. H.J. Jauncey, M.A., of The Saviour’s Church, Bolton. He was in charge of a gun on H.M.S. Defence. A telegram was received on Saturday stating that Sub-Lieut. Jauncey had been killed in action. The deceased, who was 5ft. 11 in. in height, was a fine type of Englishman, and had had a desire to join the Navy since his boyhood. After an education at the Bolton Church Institute and Uppingham Public Schools he went to the Conway, a training ship for gentlemen’s sons. He went through the necessary training, and was one of four youths chosen for service by the Cunard people. He was then just over 16 years of age, and about two years later enrolled himself in the Royal Naval reserve. When the war broke out he enlisted for war service, and as the Admiralty rules had been altered he was allowed to join the Navy proper. Only 20 years of age, he was too young for honours, but he was promoted to sub-lieutenant, which was very creditable indeed. Mr. Jauncey, in his capacity as a sailor, had voyaged widely, and when war was declared he was on a ship in an Austrian port in the Adriatic. All on board were taken prisoners, but after a fortnight were released. Mr. Jauncey then joined H.M.S. Egmont and afterwards sped across the Atlantic in the hope of taking part in the Falkland Islands battle. Their services were not required, however, and the Sub-Lieutenant was transferred to the Defence, on which boat he served up to the time of his death. Great sorrow is felt at the loss sustained, and much sympathy has been extended to Mr. And Mrs. Jauncey and their only daughter. The deceased officer was in Bolton on furlough quite recently, returning to his ship only a few days ago. A memorial service, conducted by Canon Chapman, will be held in The Saviour’s Church on Wednesday afternoon, and probably a further memorial service on Sunday evening.
