Frederick William Hayden

Hi, I need some help.
My great grandfather was Frederick William Hayden. I have found him on the 1911 census living in Woodforde Green, Essex. He was living with his wife Kate (was Robinson born Ashford, Kent 1881) and my grandfather (Thomas William) and his siblings. On the census Frederick details his birth place as Leeds, Yorkshire in about 1876.
I have Frederick's marriage certificate to Kate which details Frederick's father as an Edwin Coombe (?) Hayden, a veterinary surgeon who was deceased at the time of marriage (1904)
Absolutely nowhere can I find Frederick on a census prior to 1911 or a birth. I have found other Frederick Haydens born around the same time and in Leeds or Essex, but upon checking does not tie up to Edwin being the father. And that's another problem, nowhere can I find an Edwin Hayden who might tie in with my Frederick!
Other interesting facts: Frederick and Kate were living at Claybury Asylum, Ilford at the time of their marriage. Frederick was an attendant and Kate was a nurse. Frederick (so I am told) donated his body to medical science. I cannot find a death for him.
Any help or information would be most gratefully received as I am slowly pulling my hair out.
