For over a decade she worked tirelessly with her son Nigel to publicise some extraordinary previously unseen documents - diaries, articles and letters of her journalist uncle, Gareth Jones.  She was author of: "Gareth Jones: The Manchukuo Incident", "Gareth Jones: More Than a Grain of Truth", and countless articles and speeches.

Siriol undoubtedly made an immense contribution to raising awareness throughout the world about the work of her uncle and the horrors of the 1932-33 Holodomor in Ukraine.

She will be greatly missed.
