Greetings Philip:
Keith Murray didn't die of wounds at Villerette. He was killed outright on the outskirts of the town of Hesbecourt on September 18, 1918.
He was born in Sydney to parents Nellie (Watts) and Harold Aubrey Mutton. They also had Edward Aubrey (who died at the battle of Paschendaele Oct 12, 1917) and a daughter Marjorie Mutton.

Keith was studying to be a priest and had been awarded a parish at Gosnells. He was one of three young priests who were sent white feathers and as a consequence signed up and were all killed. They have a plaque in St George cathedral, Perth.

Keith and Dorothy had a son, also Keith, who was never to see his father.

After the divorce Nelle put the kids in orphanages and went to Kalgoorlie and Married Matthew Murray and renamed the Mutton kids and had two more daughters, Nancy and Faith.

Keith Murray sen was my grandfather and Keith jnr my father.
