Do you have his wifes burial, could he have been interred with her

I have not found for his wife and child's cremation or burial, perhaps not on deceased on line yet. But a good suggestion I should check with the local history library for area covering Islington for advice on that.

You're being a bit mysterious about who his wife was!

Was she "Elen" Lee 22 b Liverpool, in 1901?  City Road, district of Holborn.  RG13/257/120/8.

If so, was her death registered as Ellen Lee, 21, Jun qtr 1901 Holborn?

If his parents are alive in 1911 you could check number of children who have died to see if he is still alive at that point.

 another good idea I saw his parents on the 1911 census, massive family, 13 kids, 7 still living 6 died. So far via the GRO I could only find 4 using mothers maiden name indexed.

So he must have married young if he was widowed in 1901 - how old was his wife when she died?
Sadly she was about 21 and her daughter would have been their first. A sad story with hopefully a happier ending for Henry John therefore the incentive to keep looking

OK so the baby was Nellie Lee, mother's maiden name Flynn, born & died Jun qtr 1901 Holborn.

And I see that Henry John Lee fibbed about his age when he married "Helen" Flynn in Hackney on 4 Nov 1900.  He claimed to be 28 & Helen 21.

Yes either he did or the vicar got it wrong. I have his 1879 birth registration and he was truthful age wise to the enumerator in 1901

Parents of Henry John were John and Julia Lee so checking back on the census have the following children listed

Alfred 1876
Louisa 1873
Edwin Thomas 1869
Elizabeth Harriet 1862
Minnie Florence 1882
Bertie
Edmund
Thomas William 1885
Henry John 1879

That's only 9 so another 4 to find even before going through to see which have died.

Mothers maiden name Pickering.
