25TH MARCH 1938 TO 8TH FEBRUARY 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the famous Haynes Manual, founder of the Haynes Publishing Group PLC and the Haynes International Motor Museum.  John passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on the evening of Friday 8th February, aged 80, after a short illness.  John was a kind, generous, loving and devoted husband, brother, father and grandfather, who will be missed enormously.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Annette, his brother David and sister Mary, his sons J and Chris and their families.
