Fortunately his Service and Pension records exist.
Just need the Death Certificate to confirm cause of death.

I've used the new PDF service to get his DC by e-mail so it should be here in a few days. Rolling Eyes

Yep, Anne. 7 June 1919.

It looks as though his mum and dad died in West Derby in the 1920's so the Oakdale Road address may well have been the family home at that period.
