Thanks for your info on my grandfather. I had checked his service record for further details but couldn't decipher some of the handwriting so its exciting to see all the info transcribed above.
I think you have found my grandfather's death which is amazing. The National Archives is where I found my grandparents divorce so I will have another look.
Thank you for your help.
