How can I find if somebody died at sea?

Walter Charles Smith died between April 1911 and mid 1912. On the 1911 census he was "at sea". I've no idea where he sailed to or from, or what ship etc. He lived in Newport, Gwent, South Wales. He was listed as a Merchant Clerk on the 1901 Census so this is all I know. I cannot find any death certificate for him. If he died at sea, would there be any sort of record or death certificate I could find here? Also, how do I find what he did at sea? Would there any record of when/where he joined up??
I would really appreciate any help on this as im really stuck and ready to give up :-(
Thank you in advance for any replies.
