If the details on that death registration are correct, then I think it must be him as this is the only birth that ties in with the DOB

I looked at this one earlier but discounted it due to the occupation, but having thought on, he might have gone into engineering during his service?

This looks like him going out. He give his arrival on the 1911 census as '1911'

As the travel date is March, he would have missed the UK 1911 census as that was taken in April
