Courtesy Andrew Spence:-
Granville died of kidney failiure (Chronic Nephritis & Uremia)  on the 26th  April 1920 at his home 157 Rochdale Rd, Royton with his wife present and was buried in the family grave on the 1st May 1920 in Royton Cemetery, 10, 4342. His wife was pregnant with his son Granville at the time.

The service record only refers to Myalgia (Muscle Pain) in the medical reports and Granville was disembodied Class A1 fitness.  Hence, no firm evidence that the cause of death was related to service. Anecdotally, nephritis was most likely contracted overseas and muscle pain may be a symptom.  There's noting factual to support this theory.
