Here's the actual images of the Ionic's manifest for that voyage.

Were the sons mentioned in any death notice for Edith Kate? How were they noted on her death certificate? Was there a will?

Unfortunately I havenít managed to find a will for either Edith Kate Smith or Mahon. I havenít tried newspapers for a death notice.
The US death records seem quite detailed, Edith died in London and other than the cause of death, Iím not sure it will provide us with any new information.

Would the name and address of the informant be on the London death cert?

I am about to give you SMITH to Wellington per the Ionic arriving 31 May 1897.

Re the Ionic to Wellington 31 May 1897
Papers Past gives the arrivals for Wellington and for various other NZ ports and for Suva (Fiji).  I notice two adult males with surname SMITH in Steerage . 

HOW DID THEY GET ON BOARDÖ what ticket number Ö which port?

Did we investigate who else lived at 29 Devonshire Street?

http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~abneypark/genealogy/name/names-mah000.html

I don't recall anyone posting that detail before now.

I can confirm though that the GRO index per freebmd uk has indexed the death certificate twice, March quarter 1923 Marylebone, 1a/614.  So once as MAHON, Edith, aged 59 and once as SMITH Edith K, aged 59.  (two different transcribers to free bmd !)

The other people list above are possibly her sister Clara Brown and a brother in law Frederick Gregory. Not sure on the address as yet.

29 Devonshire St was a "first class nursing home"  :)

Interesting cuttings...

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/39650660 Launceston Examiner 28 May 1897
May 27-Ionic, ..... Passengers - Saloon: For Hobart......  For Melbourne : Messrs Charles, Smith, Behrens, 34 third class .... 

 https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/207896303 (from an Adelaide based newspaper, the telegram system was obviously in full 'flight') Evening Journal 28 May 1897 ... Ionic .arrived at Hobart on Thursday morning.  Her passengers are expected to reach Melbourne per S S Mararoa.
 
of course NOT to be confused by the following cutting
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/172884115 Tasmanian News 27 May 1897 ...  Yes, I could almost choose to copy paste from the first cutting in this post but then I would miss an important word... MELBOURNE...
.... . For Sydney : Mesdamesdames Steel, Richardson; Messrs Whitehouse, Arps, ..... (a few names) ... For Melbourne : Messrs Charles, Smith, Behrens, 34 third class.

So Mr SMITH was headed to either Sydney or Melbourne or Wellington and if to Wellington there were possibly TWO males who were adults surnamed SMITH and travelling steerage.
