This far I haven't seen any other text/document (other than the ones pointed at in this thread) that reported of his Death. Any additional verification, confirmation (of 1912) would be warmly welcomed, simply to be on the safe (very safe) side.
Hi Björn, I tried to contact Archive en ligne. They replied that records are only availble online until 1902 (which did not surprise me as that was my first try) and that they are not assisting people in private research. If you want to know it for sure you have to go to their reading room.

Anyway I am happy that Laurent corrected me and it is confirmed by the archive that Xre is december. As usual I can always learn something new from Laurent. A big thank you.
