Steven, have a few snippets from newspaper + photo will email you later incase you haven't seen them.

Very interesting, according to obit seems he was married to a Maggie sometime between 1901-11 who died and had two children, baffled me for a bit last night, with

not married on attestion papers and just Mother & Father on CWGC another two children lost both parents (very sad).
