John Willaim Hallam

Hi good folks,

Hope someone can help with this big problem I have! Trying to find the death date and place of John William Hallam. The area possibly around Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
He had 3 sons, with the last being born in 1911.
The last piece of documentation was his marriage and another acting as a marriage witness in 1908. After that nothing!
We did find out, that his last 2 sons (his first died), ended up being brought up seperately in Ilkeston. My Grandad - Walter Herbert Hallam, lived with his Grandma / Uncle.

We have checked, though not thoroughly, WW1 records, maybe he died there? But we have also found on his birth certificate that he was deaf at birth, so we have discounted this!

September 1884
Marriage certificate 8 December 1906 (obtained 8/2/02):
John William Hallam, aged 22, Bachelor, Coal Miner of North Norman Street, Cotmanhay. No father or proffession entered.
Ada Woolley, aged 20, spinster of North Norman Street, Cotmanhay. Father Aurthur Woolley, Labourer at Gas Works.
Married according to the Rites & Ceremonies of the Methodist Free Church.
Ebenezer Chapel, Awsworth Road, Ilkeston, Derbys.
Witnesses: Edward Davies, Elizabeth Pope.
Death: ??

Many thanks,
