Thank you for your help so far and the others too. As I said every bit helps, I just think it's a shame don't know what happened to hi, where and how he died etc.

Assuming he stayed in England/Wales, then possible deaths would be -

JAS 1933 St Olave - Richard Barry age 58
JAS 1935 Dartford - Richard Barry age 60
JFM 1974 Croydon - Richard Barry age 94 dob 1st Ap 1876
JAS 1940 Poplar - Richard Barry age 73
JFM 1926 Cardiff - Richard M Barry age 49
JFM 1930 Cardiff - Richard Barry age 52
OND 1942 Tonbridge - Richard Barry age 64
JFM 1958 Wallasey - Richard H Barry age 80
AMJ 1945 Mythyr Tydfil - Richard J Barry age 67

Can we rule any of those out?

ADDED - we can rule out the 1958 Wallasey I think. He left a will, he is Richard Hubert Barry, and executor is widow Margaret.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

You may have to be patient but he could be with the family in the 1921 census  :)

It looks as though he was  ;) according to the other thread

A few more details to add to the picture

Electoral roll for Arnley 1920, 21 & 22;
5 Wallace Street
Barry, Mary Jane
Barry, Richard

After 1922 it seems Mary Jane is on her own.

Absent Voters list 1918 West Leeds
5 Wallace Street
Barry, Richard - 2nd South Staffs. Regt.

There only appears to be one medal card for a Richard Barry in the South Staffs regiment.  Private 41846 awarded Victory & British medals.

Not sure if R. Barry 41846 is your man but....

"Weekly Casualty List - 31 Dec 1918 P26
Released Prisoners of war from Germany, arrived in England.....

SOUTH STAFFORDSHIRE REGIMENT....

Barry 41846 R. (Warrington)"

I briefly looked in the ICRC Prisoners of war records but couldn't find an obvious match.

Thanks Sc00p I'll try look in to this more, but it seems it's looking like I'll never find out what happened to him.

As I said earlier he may appear on the 1921 census with the family, at least you will then know a bit more about him.
