Are these the Bpt's of Robert's children?

Christchurch Southport
Parents Robert THOMASON occ Tailor & Alice
3/1/1873 Mary
16/8/1874 Margaret
8/4/1877 William
27/12/1885 Richard
1/4/1888 Ellen

THOMASON, WILLIAM   mmn    BALL     
1876  S Quarter in ORMSKIRK  Volume 08B  Page 773   

Not conclusive proof that father Robert has died by 1900 but on their son's m/c father noted as deceased

6 Aug 1900 Southport St Paul, Lancashire

William Thomason 24, Carter father Robert, deceased, Tailor
Frances Butler 23 father Edmond , deceased, milk dealer
Both single, both 65 Railway Street,
Witnesses were Thomas & Mary Campbell

1911 William & family https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWY3-GSC

Mary Campbell her husband Thomas & their 3 children on 1901 census RG13; Piece: 3539; Folio: 30; Page: 11, Mary remarried and surname is Hibbert by 1911.
Mary's sister Nellie (Ellen/Hellen) Thompson is with the family 1901

Is this their motherís death entry?

Alice Thomason Age at Death:   48
1900   Oct-Nov-Dec Ormskirk Volume:   8b age:   515

ADDED

As Robert appears to have been in Keighley on 1891 census

Do you think this might be a slim possibility for his death as the birth year is way out (10 yrs)  :-\

This is the entry on GRO indexes - I believe you can order a PDF online version of d/c for £6

THOMPSON, ROBERT    age    40     
1900  M Quarter in KEIGHLEY  Volume 09A  Page 157

At the moment I haven't found another RT  in Keighley born c1860 will post if I spot anything

Hi, thanks for all that you have found! I assumed it was a tailor. I often wondered with the young William if he left my gg grandmother and started another family. Iím thinking I might have to cast the net wider to find his death

Mary Campbell her husband Thomas & their 3 children on 1901 census RG13; Piece: 3539; Folio: 30; Page: 11, Mary remarried and surname is Hibbert by 1911.
Mary's sister Nellie (Ellen/Hellen) Thompson is with the family 1901

 

A possibility for the marriage of Ellen.

In 1881, Alice THOMPSON is with her parents and her children. Married, a charwoman.

Registration district /Ormskirk
ED, institution, or vessel/21
Piece/3750
Folio/118
Page Number/45


In 1891, she is with her children (including the two born during 1880's) and is a widow.
Sub registration district/North Meols
ED, Institution or Vessel/31
Piece/3038
Folio/108

In 1901
Margaret THOMASON is with her uncle, William BALL and his wife and daughter, Florence.
She is  a cleaner at the school.

This may possibly support the notion that her mother Alice had died as suggested above.
