    His name is listed in Air Ministry Casualty Communique in Flight Magazine May 10th 1945 as being
    Killed on Active Service. (KOAS)

    His name appears on the death register index for England and Wales in the Pershore District, Details of the district are here:
    http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/districts/pershore.html

    On the same date and in the same registration district Sgt G W Stafford 643273 (Nav) also died so it is only a suggestion but theire deaths might be related. Both are listed in the same list of KOAS above.

    This previous thread covered his service history as best we could determine for you:
