Ifor Jones


Ponciau, Wrexham


Ifor Jones traded from the premises previously occupied by the business of T Williams, Ponciau and the new business was set-up jointly in 2005 with David Owen of Four Crosses, Shropshire. The vehicles from the previous firm 'Tommy' Williams were temporarily transferred via Owens, Four Crosses as facilitator / dealer. The main work undertaken was private hire and some school and other contracts. Some tours were operated in conjunction with Owens, Four Crosses. In June 2007 the firm was established as a limited company – J O Travel Limited. In June 2011 the business was sold to the shareholders of GHA Coaches Limited. All vehicles, contracts and goodwill were transferred but the depot in Ponciau was not used by GHA.

The table below gives a list of all recorded vehicles known to have been with this operator.  I am indebted to David Donati for his dedicated work in compiling this data and enabling me to present it.

In the right hand column - where available - there is a link to a photograph of the vehicle.  The photo will open in a new window. Links in capital letters suggest the vehcile is seen when with the operator.

The column 'Pre HISTORY' shows information about the vehicle before joining the fleet including any re-registrations.  The column 'Post HISTORY' shows information about when the vehicle left the fleet and any known information of the subsequent history after the vehicle left the fleet.

For those who would wish to see the chassis and body numbers - these are to be found by clicking the tab at the bottom of the table.

Any suggested corrections or comments would be very welcome - please contact me using the 'how to contact me page'
