Change of Name in the late 1800's

Hi,  I have hit a brick wall and need help.  I can not find the birth certificate of my grandfather,  Leopold Leslie Manual Tanks.

On his death certificate it states he was born in Moree on the 30/08/1894.  I have found another person, Edward Tanks born 30/08/1893 in Moree.

I am thinking is it possible that his name was changed/and there is a mistake of one year on the certificates.  Could anyone direct me on where I should search next.

Thanks

Beverley
