Of course there was a body- as OP said he died in BELFAST-
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1918/05181/4430638.pdf

I checked Belfast cemeteries site (City, Roselawn & Dundonald) and not listed.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Yes, LH, that's the family. I'm awaiting results of check for death notices. The fact that his name is on the Brookwood Memorial simply indicates that his burial place was not known at that time.
Grateful to all for your responses.

I couldn't find anything on Irish Newspaper Archives
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.
