John Deacon is missing between the 1871 and 1911 Census. Have tried everything I can think of! Any ideas please

There is an 1890 Militia Attestation for John Deacon born Oakham.  Says he is 34, which puts the age out slightly, a Bricklayer, and that he had previously served 14 years with the 3rd Leicester Regiment & was discharged 17 May 1890.  His address is given as 6 Plattoff(?) St, Nottingham.

The attestation says he is married with one child, so I'm wondering if this is him in 1881, in Nottingham

John Deacon 25 Bricklayer born Nottingham
Sarah Ann 24 wife born Caythorpe, Lincolnshire
Herbert John 2 son born Nottingham
