Thank you all very much for your replies. I am at a loss with this one. I think I will get Wilhelmina's death cert. from South Australia to see what it says. There is nowhere else to go with this.

Regards
Lorayne

Oh I would think twice if you don't wish to waste your money.  Information on SA death certs is scant. 
1908-1947
    Date and Place of Death

    Occupation
    Usual Residence

    Number of Issue Living and Deceased
    Cause of Death

If you feel you need it, I suggest you purchase a transcription about half the price.  Google Graham Jaunay, he provides this service.

Thanks everyone for your input.
I have found a William Richard Kennett in the New South Wales Police Gazette in 1907. He is at Creasey's Hotel in Parramatta. He then aquires a publican licence at Toowoomba, Queensland, in 1908, then 2 more pubs at Ipswich, Queensland, until 1913. In 1914 there is a W.R. Kennett storekeeper at Sandgate, Queensland, selling up and moving to England. It is only an unproven theory, but explains why there is no death for him anywhere in Australia, given also that I can only find 3 William Richard Kennetts in the entire country. Him, his father, and a nephew in S. A.
The dates all fit and my gut feeling is this is him, but cannot prove it.

Thanks again
Regards
Lorayne

Thank you very much for your reply also.

It is possible, given that I don't know for sure what happened to him. However even if I did get the death cert from England, the most useful things would be occupation and witness to the death, as English certs. do not give much info. I still could not prove where he came from.
