What about this fellow?
Digger - Death Index. Victoria 1921-1985
MUMFORD, William, died 1959, aged 92, reg 'Balw' (Balwyn?)
Mother: Hannah FRENCH
Reg Number: 8749
Other William Mumford deaths in this same time frame do not fit with age or parent details. The above death cert would tell you his birthplace and any marital details if known to the informant, also list any children, and how long he had been in Australia. An image can be downloaded for $A17.50, cheaper than a paper copy, and we do not have transcription agents or any other access to certificates in Victoria.
You can search New South Wales online up to 1977.
There are some deaths there, perhaps you would recognize his parents names, they do not normally give ages in the index.
