The death of Smith happened ten years before Tom Riddle, now as Lord Voldemort, came back to Hogwarts supposedly to ask Dumbledore for a teaching post. Because Dumbledore became Headmaster some time after 1965 and before 1970, we place the murders in approximately 1956. The actual date could be a year or two later than that, but not before.
