He is a widow and living in Llandilo in 1939 if that helps narrow down a burial place

Seems his estate went to probate, unfortunately administration rather than a will.

Search his name and year. It will give his date and place of death.

He was a widower. We have got him in the 1939 regiister living in Penygroes near Llandybie with Leo M Bland but nothing after. I asked our local Registrar for the death certificate with Deaths Dec 1947 
Anthony Tom 73    Carmarthen 8a   246 but they couldn't find him.

Re 1939 register - Yes I didnít read all the way through the thread to realise Leo Bland was Elizabethís widowed husband until after I posted it.

Tom (or Thomas) Anthony's mother was Elizabeth and his daughter was Elizabeth Gladys (or Gwladys) that married Leo M Bland. These two widowed men lived together in Banctwrgwili in Penygroes near Llnadybie until at least 1939. We found the mother (Elizabeth's) grave in Penygroes. No sign of Tom in their burial register.

That ref number is only applicable to the GRO  it will mean nothing to the local registrars office.

We have come to a halt with Tom Anthony. He appears to have left Banctwrgwili some time after the 1939 census. Next place we find him is in Dolaugleision, Capel Isaac outside Llandeilo. He then gets married to an Annie (Anne) Morgans (Morgan) in 1943, 4 years before his death. The witness on his death certificate is A Anthony from Felinparcau. Freebmd and ancestry have no reasonable answers and no death date for Annie. We tried the Leo M Bland link but he left after 1939 to Caldey Island as a dairyman and died in St David's hospital in Carmarthen and unable to find his grave. We thought they may have gone together after 1939 but now appears they didn't.
