Can you tell us his name, and his age at 1911?

Some other snippet may turn up with that information.

I'm guessing ZA is South Africa (2-letter country code)

Thank you Pauline i do have date of Burial in JHB and picture of the Grave stone
ECT   As mentioned i am lost in the search From  him leaving Russia To The U .k as a transmigrant I have  - ( Everything from 1911 to present i have found.)  There are many specialist's-geneologists   who talk About the Poor shelters in the UK  But i cannot locate any data base regarding his name
The Kaplan institute has some info  but nothing regarding my search
Thank you
