It shouldn't be considered a blank until After you have proved the ref I found isn't her.

Did Alice have relatives living in Ecclesall Bierlow ? She may have gone to a relatives for the birth.

Edit - The Jessop Hospital for Women had an annexe at Norton Hall which is in Ecclesall B.

Where and when did Horace die? That could be a pointer to where Alice died.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

thanks everyone, ive spent a long time scrolling throough records and still not found anything about alice, last record is 1929. If she were at Sheffields Jessops Womens hospital, is there anywhere I can check those records. if she died in childbirth, wouldn't the infant be registered as male or female infant? I cant be certain about Horace powell (spouse) there are no pointers to the whereabouts of him, but I know the three children went on to get married still in Rotherham x

She could have died of a pregnancy - related illness,  and the child stillborn,  so not appearing on any index.   

If you are not going to purchase the candidate death certificate,  then I  can't see any point in further conjecture.

How close a relative is this Alice to you? If you don't want to purchase a certificate, it will be a long search, whether to find Alice, or locate Horace's death.
Do you have any of the children's marriage certificates? If so, is Horace listed as deceased on them? That will narrow down your search.
From your post, I gather there are no Horace Powell's in the Rotherham area. This lends more credence to the 1932 death that PaulineJ found, in my opinion.
Stillborns were registered in a separate register, but these records are closed to the public. As PaulineJ has said, Alice may have died of complications prior to birth.
Have you looked at newspapers for an obituary? I'm not sure whether the relevant newspapers are available online, but they could be searched in person.
