If you contact the Registry Office at Bexley, you should be able to purchase a copy of his death certificate, and this will give you the name and address of the informant of his death, which could be a relative.

Hi 'Tarleton'.
Have you looked for his birth on Scotland's People? There is only one match showing for births (and marriages). To see anything you have to buy credits.
To buy the cert would cost £10 I think.
Have you any idea who registered his death?
