Three remembered FAA Pilots?

I have been tasked by an old Matelot to find out why the names of three FAA Pilot's are remembered in prayer books at a church in Merry Meet, Cornwall.
Their names are, Lt.Cdr Chris Jenny, Lt.Cdr Tim Ellis and Lt. Julian Barraclough. A date in the book suggests that they were put in 1983.
I have tried my usual channels, to no avail and the church doesn't have a web site.
So, have any of you, my brother Wu's, have any idea how they died or the significance to this particular act?
Cheers

Hi CrashCrew.

Although the date recorded in the prayer book states 1983, could the date actually read 1989? If so re Lt. Julian Barraclough, is this your man? : Royal Navy casualties, killed and died, 1980-89 Scroll down to May 1989.

Monday,8 May 1989

RNAS Culdrose, flying Scottish Aviation Jetstream during Sea Cadet Corps Open Day air display, stalled during wing-over manouevre, crashed into Portland Harbour, Dorset

ELLIS, John T, Lieutenant Commander, C021956E, died.
Additional info found on this page: F_18_Hornet

Lyn, Scouse, cheers guys. Sounds like them.( nice to see you back Lyn) I suspect they lived in that parish at the time of death.

CrashCrew,

Julian D Barraclough was born in 1957 in Leeds, therefore I think you're quite correct in thinking that they lived in that parish at the time of death. The local Newspaper might well have listed their obituaries.

Happy to be of help. =)
