 Thank you both for very much for this info.

I spent this morning at the library but didn't get very far I think William married a Florence Hall Howard in 1929 and they had a son Robert Howard Sinclair born in 1932  he died in 2003
 
Could not find a death for  William born in 1856 or Elizabeth Sims.

Could possibly narrow William Sinclair's death between 1929 - 1932 using entries from London Electoral Register

1918/19/21 living 64 Halton Street Islington
William , Elizabeth Adelaide Sinclair & Henry Frederick Sims

1922 address 5 & 6 Manchester Mansions Islington
William , Elizabeth Adelaide Sinclair & Henry Frederick Sims

1928 address 6 Manchester Mansions
William, Elizabeth Adelaide & William Robert Sinclair
1930 same address as above but no WRS but Ethel Mary Sims is with W & E

1931/32 address 99 Woodlands Avenue Finchley Barnet
Elizabeth Adelaide, Florence Susan & William Robert Sinclair also
Ethel Mary Sims

1934/35/36/37/38/39 address 55 Grosvenor Avenue Islington
Elizabeth Adelaide Sinclair & Ethel Mary Sims


EDITED - Removed deaths as wrong surname  ::) this is probably his death

Mar 1931   
Sinclair    William    age 74    Islington    1b   381
