Resigned from Evening Star Lodge on 1.10.08 but had joined Zetland Lodge No. 608 on 19th July of the same year. He resigned from Zetland on 1st Aug 1913, so at present it does not appear he was a freemason during the war years and makes it difficult, without an annotation in the register, to determine date of death.
