Was he married to your grandmother as the marriage certificate should give some information on his father.

Was this his death in 1920

If he was born 1891/1892 freebmd has numerous births for a William John Hill

What was your grandmothers christian name and maiden name?

What were the names of the children born to the marriage?

On your previous post you said you already had the info that members had posted and just wanted a photograph?

You also said he was born 1868 which does not correspond with the death in 1920

Exactly what info are you looking for?
