Was he still in the Civil Service in 1920?

(According to fatherís probate record, 1917).

I have no idea. I have seen that one on the ship log with a wife, but when I traced him back it was not him.
Thank you.

I haven't seen the one you refer to here.
I just saw that he was the executor of his father's estate in 1917 - Ďa civil service studentí and named again in a note dated 1920 re Cuthbertís effects.
Is this the 1920 reference?

No, it is a ref to when the family estate (Father) was broken up and each child was pay out. The date state on the paper work when he signed for his share was 13 May 1920.

Father Stephen must have died just before Cuthbertís war gratuity was paid and it was put into Stephenís estate and settled December 1920 with William N named as executor. I think thatís what it looks like.

I was thinking if he was in the Civil Service he could be anywhere. Presumably, no address on any paperwork.
Have you researched other family members?
