Edward John Baptiste Vanhove - missing death

Park Avenue, Rockhampton
Am having trouble finding the death details of an ancestors, son-in-law.
He was deceased from between 1871 census and 1881 census in England.
His name was Edward John Baptiste Vanhove, born about 1842 in Louvain/Lourain, Brehant, Belgium.
He married Alice Jane Honnor on the 12 Sep 1868 at St Philips Church, Bethnal Green. His father Joseph was a printer.
Cigar maker at time of marriage and 1871 census (if checking census, put in Alice's name not Edwards, his is abbreviated). Address was 12 Cotton Street, and their surname is spelt as Venhove on the typed index.
Alice is living with her father in Norfolk (William Honnor born 1813 London), she is listed as a widow. Her name is not complete on this ceensus.
I thought I found his death on the rootsweb site, but when I ordered the certificate, it was of a child whose father was also an Edward but mother's name did not match Alice's.
Did not find any other references to my Edwards surname that matched his details for the time period needed, some-one thought he may have died overseas, not found as yet.
Any help in theis quest will be most welcomed, been trying for some years now to find his death.
