Look up please George Standley 1829 Newton Abbott 1891 census.  What's the place of his birth?
There is a death registration in 1905 age 76 but I am unable to find him in 1901.
Any help please.

The 1891 census states that he was born in Mauritius (British Subject) and his wife's name was given as Louisa. There is a newspaper report, dated 1 Jan 1892 (Torquay Times) which describes the suicide of Louisa who it appears suffered from severe depression had been declared insane.
He married Amelia Eugenia MORRISON in 1893 in Newton Abbot district.

I can't see him on census prior to 1891.  Passenger lists for the UK are not available prior to this date.

If you obtain the marriage certificate to Amelia MORRISON, it will give George's father's name and occupation which may help to locate more information.

I found the newspaper report of Louise's suicide in the Torquay Times, it gives her middle name as Bertha.  George married a Louise Bertha Buscum in 1872 in Mauritius so I feel sure that I have the right George Standley.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
