I donít think so. Iíve made contact with someone who has an alternative date of death of 1926 as opposed to 1930.

But newspaper mention I can see (which is neither of the ones you have posted) is for  29 Dec 1930.

So reg might be in 1st qrtr of 1931. But I donít see one other than one age 70  in Dewsbury district which seems a bit far away.

But, if they never found the body, would it have been registered 7 years later?  Or maybe there was no need to sort out any legal matters so it was never done?

Oh my god. Brain cross-circuit...

Yes you are correct. Too much GRO searching for me. Thought I flipped to deaths.

If he was born about 1864 and would be about 66... there is this one (under deaths)

I don't think that's him. This probate record looks like a match for that one, and this John William and Elizabeth appear to be in St Helens in 1911. St Helens comes under the Prescot district.

Probate index:
John William Douglass
of 30 Gleave Street, St Helens, Lancashire
died 05 Feb 1931
