You can purchase certificates and for $17.50 & download his death certificate directly to your PC, the certificate will list his wife and any children he had. If any. The informant usually has an address listed as well.

From here:

You will need to use the information from his death index:

Hi Janet,

A possibility for your Thomas?

The National Archives has a digital WWI record for a Thomas Currie, born Ayrshire, 1885.

N.O.K. mother Grace L. Currie, Hawkhill, Ayr, Scotland.

His address at time of enlistment was Hamilton, Victoria, Australia.

Occupation: Accountant.

Thomas’ record is the second last one on the page.

Link below: click on 'View digital copy'.

This Thomas married a Florence Gertrude Thomas, of Hamilton Victoria (resident of London at time of marriage), at Ayr Parish Church (old) on 24 July, 1919.

The marriage details are included in his digital WWI service record.

Address at time of marriage: Whitleth Road, Ayr.

Father Thomas Currie, building contractor (deceased).

Link below to the ‘Argus’ newspaper (Victoria) announcement of their marriage

He was discharged in the U.K. and spent some time there doing more training for his (accountancy) profession.

A daughter, Olwyn Rhoda (June) Currie was born in England in 1920

Link below to Victoria, Australia newspaper announcement of her birth.

And sadly, her death at Hamilton, Victoria, on her 25th birthday.

Olwyn was engaged in 1941 . . .

A Gertrude Florence Currie was cremated at Springvale Necropolis in 1980, and her remains are in the wall niche next to Thomas Currie.
