Hi

According to the Ecclesiatical returns

William Reveley Tench, Electrical Engineer, died 30 May 1908 of sunstroke aged 60 and was buried 31 May 1908 at the Church or Station of Delhi in Lahore

As no specific place other than Delhi is mentioned it might be worthwhile contacting the Africa & Asia Studies room at the British Library to see if they can offer more assistance quoting the reference number N/1/349 page 255
