James Henry KYNOCH [c.1882-1926]
James Kynoch was Senior Inspector of Works at the time of his death and had been with the PWD for 18 years. He had worked on the construction of the Panama Canal. He was one of the original promoters of the Kowloon Golf Club, a member of the Kowloon Cricket Club and a member of the Committee of the Union Church, Kowloon. He seems to have been a long standing friend and PWD contact of my grandfather, Charles Warren and a Kowloon neighbour. He is one of the twenty or so people listed in the SCMP as attending Charles Warren's funeral at St Michael's Cemetery in June 1923. He died at an even younger age only three years later.
