Newton, 68 Nicholson-street, South Yarra, late of St. Arnaud, and brother-in-law of Mrs. J. Andrew, Leroy ; Mrs. G. Roddis, Sydney ; Mrs. C. Walsh, South Yarra; Ross and Frank Newton, South Yarra.

St Arnaud Mercury (Vic. : 1914 - 1918) Wednesday 4 July 1917 p 2 Family Notices.

His name is William George Hall. Company Sergeant Major.

If you go to the Commonwealth War Graves site and search using his name and Service Number you will be able to download a very nice commemorative certificate for him.

Also, if you look through Trove there are Memoriam notices for him in June 1918 and 1919.
