Hello hoopie.

This appears to be his death.

Name: Edward Thomas WOOLLEY.
Died: 11 July 1942, Queensland.
Father: William WOOLLEY.
Mother: Annie SMITH.

Ref: Registry of Deaths Queensland.
Registration number 1942/C/3887.

This only confirms date of death for you and that he died in a country area in Queensland. You may have to obtain death certificate to find the actual location. The accident would have appeared in the newspaper of the time but may take some time to find on Trove.

Hope this helps.

Unable to locate a marriage for your Sarah Ann PLUMB in 1893.
Let me know who and where Sarah married and I will make another search.

According to the details for Edward's death in 1942 his mother was Annie SMITH.
His birth record names his mother as Sarah Ann. Informant for his death may have made a mistake with his mother's name.
