I was going over my cemetery notes and now I wonder if the Church of England cemetery in Harrietsfield is the Marriett cemetery on Whitehead Road. Because there was a schoolhouse on the property where those old mounds are, I get the feeling the graves there are from back before the 1900s, even though they would be Church of England graves too. The 1931 burial for William Marriett would be too late for that (this) burial ground, and I see a headstone in the Whitehead Road cemetery for  William T. Marriett, 1879-1931.
The death information you found on him says he was 50 years old in 1931, which fits. I think that may be him. In the 1881 census this fellow was one year old, so chances are his gravestone dates are correct.
