Thanks for all your help.

I've ordered a copy of his Death Certificate - if it seems his death was as a result of his war service, I'll submit him to the CWGC.

I'm wondering if there was a bit of a mix up over records, and some info for a Charles, a tailor, son of a Henry,  and those of Edward Charles David known as Charles Edward David, son of Charles and Susanah, got confused, thus alterations made etc.

Do share on here what it says (informant, cause of death etc) as it is a bit of a mystery!

Will do.

Another "mystery" is his address on discharge of 55 Freeman St, Coventry.  That address also appears on the records of 2nd Lt John Wesley Edwards, MC - I wonder why?

55 Freeman Street was the Edwards family home ( various newspaper reports, May and June 1918 re presentation of the MC to the lieutenant's father).

Shaun: I have cuttings from the Dudley Herald of 17.11 and 1.12.17, and 8.6.18 re 2nd Lt Edwards.  If you have any others, I'd love to scrounge them from you!

The mentions I saw were in the Coventry Standard and the Coventry Herald

Just received the Death Cert - it does not state that his illness was due to his military service, so he is correctly not recorded by the CWGC (although he is on our war memorial....).

A munitions worker, death was due to acute pneumonia; he died at 10 New King St, Dudley and his widow, Mrs E J Philpot, was in attendance.
