Lola, There are no records showing up in Record Search nor the Australian War Memorial for him
I found this article which may explain a few things
If he did die in WW1 he might have been serving in the British forces instead of Australia - either that or he didn't serve under his real name
Lola, I found this article in Trove dated 1919

Lola, Sorry about the translation - I thought I had correct the wording
You could try checking British War Records or get his death certificate to find more information -
I can check his birth/parents if needed - sorry I couldn't find him listed in our records for any war service
Lola, I have checked for his death on the UK GRO Index and he is not listed - if you can access Merchant Marine Records in the UK maybe they have a record of his death? If he died in South Shields you would think that the death would have been registered?
Lola, Yes it might be a typo - I hope it turns out to be him
Please let me know how you go
Hi Elizabeth - back again finally as the certificate only arrived this afternoon, and has taken me ages to find the blog site. better save it in my favourites.
As I thought no parents listed on the death certificate, but he was 28 and an able seaman on board the S/S Redriff of Stephen Street, Brisbane Queensland.
if you would like a copy I can send it to you. but from my memory [sorry should have looked at that before I came on here] think his mother may have lived in Stephen Street. I do know she lived in Queensland. and the notice in the paper said he died on or about 23 Feb and Charles died 28 Feb 1917. So a great result - again thanks so much for your help. Kind regards Lola
Lola, Thanks for the update - that is great news that it is the correct one
