Probate gives the same address as his masonic record: KENNEDY William John of 23 The Royalty, Sunderland, died 4 January 1917 at the Sunderland Infirmary Sunderland Probate Durham 1 March to Mary Hannah Kennedy spinster. Effects £248 14s. 11d.
Commonwealth War Graves shows: "KENNEDY, 1st Engr. William John. "Lonclara" (London). Killed by mine 4th Jan., 1917. Age 50. Brother of Miss Mary Hannah Kennedy, of 23, The Royalty, Sunderland." The fact that he died at Sunderland, must mean that he was injured, and died later of his wounds.
Naval Campaign is defined as to include all sea operations that do not fall within specific naval battles such as Jutland, Coronel, Falklands etc. This includes all Merchant Navy losses.

William is 42 years old and resident at 23 The Royalty, Monkwearmouth at the time of his initiation in 1908. He was a Marine Engineer. The contribution record shows "Lost at Sea May 1917." Probate shows that he died on shore at Sunderland, so this particular comment is incorrect.
