Walker Family in Tasmania

Hi - I need some help. My grandfather was Walter Alexander Walker. The only information I have on him is from his death certificate.
He was born 1889 in Launceston to William Walker and Mary Elizabeth Johnson. He lived in Tasmania for 31 years and then Victoria for 30 years (mostly Newmarket now called North Melbourne. He went back to Tassie in 1926 to get married there with Hilda Hayhoe in Newstead Tasmania. There are no records of his birth nor his marriage. Walter and Hilda had five boys, one was my dad plus four uncles. None of the latter know anything about Walter or their grandparents. Rumour has it that there was a religious fall out between Walter and his parents. William and Mary were apparently farmers in Tasmania according to Walter's death certificate.
If anyone has any clues please help as I'm getting nowhere very fast.
