The first thing you need to do is to get his death certificate and see what that says. There is a death registration for a Stanley W H Smith born 1896 whose death was registered in the December quarter of 1943 in Cardiff Volume 11A page 372, which it seems likely to me is your guy.

That death certificate should tell you when, where and how he died, and once you have that you start to search old newspaper for reports of accidents – bearing in mind that it was wartime, and there may have been restrictions on what was reported. Your local library should have access to old line old newspaper archives that you could search.
