Thanks Jim1 that’s great. I am wondering if he did die abroad prior to that date but after 1917 and before January 1922. His is wife’s application shown on the document I posted. Wellington Taid rings a bell in my research somewhere along the line

Thanks again

 
Nothing to indicate he died during WW1. On saying that his widow is applying for his medals in 1924. She refers to him as her late husband. This is after they had been returned for correction in 1923. It's possible he returned them but died before getting them back.
Her address at the time was 116 Wellington Rd. Park Rd. Dingle L'pool.
His Regts. were 1st. Garrison Battalion R.I.R. with whom he served in Gallipoli hence his 15 Star.
Then Lab. Corps, R.E. & finally Inland Waterways & Docks (R.E.).

Thanks Hallmark I have looked and trying to tie possible in. The family story that he died ‘on the Cape Town Run’ Also New York grrr one story is that he wanted to die on land with his ‘boots on ‘  it is now certain that he didn’t die shortly after my father in laws birth

Irish C Reg  Death results for William Reid from 1901 to 1915

You know his birth year so you can see if any fit by age at Death

Oh nice one jonw65. Soooooo if he did die it’s got to be between say 1920 and January 1922. Her second marriage was to Thomas Berry.
Thanks a bunch.

Nearly forgot!
Two registers in 1921
That was Spring, and the Autumn one is also on there, shows no change.

But they don't have 1922?
