Henry 37, 47, 57 in 1891, 1901, 1911:

Deaths Sep 1921
Bright Henry 70 Bristol 6a 118
Deaths Mar 1922
Bright Henry 59 Keynsham 5c 840
Deaths Jun 1922
Bright Henry 75 Bristol 6a 207
Deaths Mar 1923
Bright Henry J 69 Bristol 6a 212

The last one looks the best fit but no middle initial in any census.
From the youngest two in 1861 it looks as though these are the baptisms. Henry has been understating his age.

Deaths Mar 1859
BRIGHT Hannah Keynsham 5c 371 ?? Looks like 571

The expected page range for this district is 565 to 580

John Bright
christening: 4 May 1851 Kingswood (Near Bristol), Gloucester
John Bright & Hannah

Giles Bright

Can't find the marriage for John.
