Have you checked for deaths in Ireland:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp

Also there are various sites that will have the Eng/Wales/Scot census for 1901. Have you checked these?

There's a son Samuel born 23rd July 1881 in Newtownwards Ireland , parents William James Conway and Margaret Robb.
Did Elizabeth marry Archibald Ramsay , 1890 Irvine Ayr ?
Perhaps the family were back in Scotland by then  :-\
