OP says he was definitely still alive in 1913

Yes, which is why I posted about the death/ funeral in 1908 of the man whose stage name was Austin Melford.

Until / unless clalouha comes back and gives us more info, including what shows he was still alive in 1913 we can only straw clutch at 'possibles'.

Hi, I am looking for Alfred Smith who was a music hall artist in Birmingham, I don't know where or when he was born only that he had died by 1936. He was married to Abbie Wright though I can't find the marriage certificate, they had two children one is my granddad who was Wallace Headley Smith born 1913 and who died in 1940 aged 27, he had a brother also called Alfred  who was a few years younger , who married a woman named Rose in Birmingham I think?

SMITH, WALLACE  HEADLEY     
Mother's Maiden Surname: WRIGHT 
GRO Reference: 1913  J Quarter in BOLTON  Volume 08C  Page 676

Well, a tree on ancestry says Alfred died in hospital in Birmingham, 21 March 1919.
Informant on cert Abbie Smith.

They link to this death
SMITH, ALFRED  GEORGE     
Age at Death (in years): 51
