Where have you looked already yourself - to save any duplication of effort? And where did you get the information about a pauper's grave?

Where does your information about his date and place of burial come from.  Where was he living in 1901

It is likely he was in the Chester Union Workhouse on Hoole Lane. If you go to Google Streetview and the junction of Hoole Lane and Housesteads Drive you can see the former Chapel. The Workhouse graveyard was in the grassed area. Being paupers, nobody had a gravestone.  In recognition of this, a commemorative gravestone was laid there. If you email me, I can send you a picture and an article about it. On Streetview you will see the curved brick wall and you can just make out the gravestone lain flat behind it. If he was in a different Workhouse, I am afraid I don't have any detail.

(2) Gregorys of Tarporley, Cheshire.
(3) Pughs of 'The New Pale' near Frodsham and Delamere in Cheshire.
(4) Nevills of Llanelly, Llangennech and Felinfoel.
(5) Yaldens of Ovington/Lovington in Hampshire.

The 1901 census shows he was in the Hoole Workhouse.
You can see the graveyard on this map https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=17&lat=53.19722&lon=-2.86915&layers=168&right=BingHyb
