Currently little is known about Commin.

His residential address at the time was Montana Vista in Aliwal Road. He registered as a probationer of the RIBA in 1922 or 1923 in Wynberg. At some point he established practice with FN BANFIELD as in 1959 he is recorded as a principal in the partnership of COMMIN and BANFIELD of Calder's Chambers, Main Road Wynberg.
