I can not find him on ODGW. However, The Cross of Sacrifice States that he died on the 15/1/1918 and that he is buried in Brookwood Cemetery, Surrey.

The CWGC register adds no more detail other than he is in Grave No.G180429 in Brookwood Cemetery (note not the military cemetery but the adjacent civil one), near Woking, Surrey.

This means that he must have died in the UK. He is not listed in "Bloody Red Tabs" and so he must have died of natural causes or by accident (or just possibly by foul play!).

My g-uncle  Capt Arthur Agius was his Staff Officer  from May 1917 to Howell's untimely death, aged 56, on the parade ground 15th Jan 1918.

He was CO of 1st London Reserve  /   Aldershot District   from Oct 1916.      (see http://agiusww1.com/2016/12/19/19th-december-1916/  and numerous references to Howell  in Arthur's letters home).    Howell was present and spoke at  Arthur Agius's wedding,  21st October 1916 (in Hampstead).
