Henry Semple Park and James Henry Park who were both born in Tasmania 9 May 1884. Were they twins who also died on the same day in 1953, or did James change his name when family moved to Western Australia?

I have a possible DNA connection to Henry Semple Park b. 9th May 1884. Some online trees show that his parents, William Park and Ellen had another child, James Henry Park, with the same birth date. Could be a twin of course, but the fact that some records also show they had the same death date - 30 June 1853 is interesting. As is the fact that James Henry Park has a birth record in Tasmania, but there is no matching record for Henry Semple Park. Henry Semple Park has a death record in Western Australia but I have not found one for James Henry Park.

Did James Henry Park, born in Tasmania, change his name to Henry Semple Park when the family moved to WA?
There is plenty of evidence for Henry Semple living, marrying, dying and even surviving a car crash, but nothing about James Henry Park that I have found.

Anyone have any information on this? Or photos of either of these men?
