According to SA BDM (free search) George is Buried in the Enfield Cemetery ( suburb of Adelaide)

George  married a Catherine Claire Forbes  in 1913

There is a newspaper notice of his death. ie Advertiser or The News but they are not currently indexed online.

Trove.nla.gov.au should help you search for the many mentions of George such as this marriage notice
