Stuart, I note that you have the deaths of these cousins as 1922 (Qld). The registrations are F3350 and F3351. If you look up the military service records, Arthur was killed in action in France 5.10.1918 and William killed in action in Belgium 29.10.1917. The Qld registrations would be for the issue of Australian death certificates via the military forces.

Note: A death certificate registration occurred in Qld, 1922 F3350 and probate was granted in NSW 9.4.1919 which wrongly gives his death as 5.10.1919). Arthur enlisted 31.8.1915 giving his occupation as farmer and stating he had been apprenticed as a surveyor. He was wounded in action in France 29.7.1916. He was again wounded in action in France on 23.5.1918 (gassed) and repatriated to Britain 29.5.1918. on 12.9.1918 he returned to the front. He was wounded in the chest/lung on 3.10.1918 and died two days later.
