Simon - unfortunately the agreement we have with Findmypast when taking out a subscription with them, is to NOT share images elsewhere.
However, it appears from the image that you did put up that you have found the right one. As Adrian says, you needed to follow through other images in the set as there are several pages. Advice of the date and place of death is on one of those pages. He served in the Boer War and died at Bloemfontein which is in South Africa.
There are several death registrations for the GRO Natal & South African Forces(1899-1902) for "H Collins" but unfortunately none of them give a regiment, so it is impossible to know which might be your Harry.

No you don't need to upgrade to World. The Army records and the GRO records that Sylvia referred to, are all part of the UK stuff - because that's where the records originate.

It's important as he is the only child I cannot account for
I have all the records for his brothers and sisters

Do I just go to search
Put in Harry or Henry Collins
Death 1901

Please help as I'm confused , so sorry

Thank you

You found his Army records once, so do the same again but ensure that you use the left and right arrows to get all his records. The death information mentioning Bloemfontein will be in those, as Sylvia says.

So far as I understand, the GRO registration stuff that Sylvia mentioned is not actually necessary for your research - it was simply a cross check. The GRO certificates for soldiers dying overseas contain no more data than the soldier's records and frequently less. So my advice would be to forget that bit and just find the full set of images for his soldier's papers.
