Not mentioned in 1918 in his son's marriage notice.

At St. James' Church on August 31,the Rev. P. A. Byrnes officiated at the marriage of Miss Maude Bailey, only daughter of Mr. W. F. Bailey, of Waverley, with Mr. Walter Kennett, eldest son of Mrs. W. R. Kennett, of Henley Beach, South Australia.

1901 - another snippet which doesn't help with his death at all but I thought it was interesting - an account of a trip to UK by "Mr F H Harman of Messrs Good, Toms & Co and Mr W R Kennett of St Peters"

Managing to narrow it down a bit Judith. 1904 to 1918.

These are the only 2 i can find in SA in that time period.

1907   324/180   KENNETT   William      Clare
1908   337/479   KENNETT   William Richard      Encounter Bay

We know the 1908 one is his father. I'll see if i can find something on the 1907 fella.

The advertisements for his business The People's Store, drapers seem to cease in 1904 and the business is listed as an "Assigned Estate" in 1906.  My understanding is that that means the business had been assigned into administration - but I could be wrong!!

So perhaps he just dropped out of sight after this.  :-\

Would be interesting to see if Wilhelmine had a will and or who the informant was on her death cert.
