I think he must have been one of those identified by family DNA after the recovery of several from a mass grave in 2010

(see Boot : Pheasant Wood mass grave, Fromelles | Australian War Memorial (awm.gov.au))

If you look at the the headstone document on CWGC Casualty Details | CWGC

It looks like it was ordered in 2012
