Looks like a brother (Bernard John) served with the Royal Artillery Regiments, Fulham.
Gunner, service number 1312

"DIED - At Blackheath Hill, on the 19th inst, Mrs Isabella Maitland, relict of Samuel Maitland, Esq, late Commander - H.E.I. Company's service"

Possibly unrelated, but there's a Nov 1820 death record in Walworth for a Thomas Hopkins (born 1751). Residence: 4 Gordon Place, Suffolk St, East Blackman Street

There's also a Dec 1831 death in Walworth for a Mrs Martha Hopkins (born 1759).
Residence: 7 Horsemonger Lane, Borough

This probably relates to brother William Pead:

Does the 1795 Will of James Pead provide any other family details to go on, besides citing his two nephews in London?

Basically, I'm trying to find Johnís death/burial and I've looked in all of the 'obvious' places. Iím beginning to think that he died in the Workhouse. He was not on 1861 Census there.

Does Marth (Madge) Wentworth appear in the 1921 census showing any employment?

In 1921 Martha Wentworth is with her family in Kingswinford. No occupation listed. Just "Home Duty".

Is there a possibility that the Queen's Hotel Albert Spiers (waiter) could be the person who was in the Navy? See Reply #49. The Navy record gives a physical description of the young man.

I forgot to mention that his age in the 1921 census (taken on 19 June) is recorded as "22 years, 1 month". So that's a May birthday, but one year out. The address he's living at also has many other people of various trades and employed/unemployed status.

Given the Queen's Hotel info which Mike provided maybe this Albert Spiers is a strong candidate? I saw the record yesterday and disregarded, but decided to mention it today. The occupation of waiter and the surname made me think twice.
