If his brother Benjamin was still in the area, wouldn't he have been a best man or a witness ?. Where were the other siblings ?

Cannot find their burial records. They are not at Mile End or Yew Tree Brake.

Cannot find any sign of offspring in PRs or by using FreeBMD.

Back to other siblings ?

Maybe sister Edith ?;

No obvious sign that parents Harry & Edith died in the FoD area.

FreeBMD has brother Charles' birth;

No obvious sign of a marriage, and I'm unable to see the full household if there is one, but;

Is this his death ?;
