Note the dates!

Private
CLUNESS, MAGNUS
Service Number 2887221
Died 04/09/1946
Aged 51
30th Bn.
Gordon Highlanders
Son of John Cluness, and of Mary Cluness (nee Jamieson); husband of Thomasina Tessie Cluness. of Gutcher, Yell.

Aged 51! Never heard of 30th Battalion, Gordon Highlanders!

Able Seaman
CLUNESS, WILLIAM
Died 12/04/1947
Aged 41
S.S. The Viceroy (Glasgow)
Merchant Navy
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Cluness, of Uyeasound, Zetland.

The only reference I can find is in Dutch!
I think it says that the SS The Viceroy hit a mine when sailing from Antwerp to Aberdeen.
https://wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?1109
Viceroy was op weg van Antwerpen naar Aberdeen met 900 ton kunstmest toen het in de vroege ochtend van 12 april om 6,25 op een mijn liep in de Everingen. Piet Zwemer uit Borssele heeft met een sloepje nog drenkeling gered. De zwaar gewonde kok werd opgepikt door het passerende zweedse stoomschip LUNGO. De viceroy werd mid-scheeps getroffen. Wrakresten waren bij laag water zichtbaar toen.
