James and Hannah Barnett are still around in 1891, living in Funtington.
Birthplaces James gives in the census are Langston(e) and Hayling Island.
He seems to have died in 1898, age 88. It looks like in the workhouse or infirmary, as the burial at Funtington, 27 Dec, gives abode as Westbourne Union.

But is it the right James?
And a Hannah Barnett is on the same image, buried 1 July, age 81.
