I canít see a marriage in England.

We are not allowed to post details of 1939 register but his name is in the index in Stratford.

His will might give more information for you. The probate register index  just gives his details - no executor because of the date.

Using the Advanced Search on Civil Reg website

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/advanced-civil.jsp

where both Surnames are known ( 1900+ ) only shows 2 births anywhere in Ireland

Yes I was surprised to see they were buried at the RC graveyard. Will follow up your suggestion of his will thank you. He was in England a long time then.
Thanks for all the pointers.
