More info would help; They mainly fail to ignite as flue is blocked. Spiders web and wasp nest are common problems. A quick clean with small bottle brush may assist. Try igniting with a gas filled lighter (the type with a 150mm long tube).

I assume that the piezo is sparking.

Sorry bit dumb of me. It appears i left the suburban gas hot water system on while i was travelling. There are burnt wires etc. I'm trying to find a gas plumber who is familiar with these systems to repair it for me. I've googled but can't find anyone in Melb or more my locality to repair it. I live in the Frankston area Vic. Thanks for your suggestion it may come in handy later!

You may need someone that can do gas plumbing that pipe might need changing. I dont know what else should be changing.
