This looks like Florence Eva in 1891.
The birth year and place for her mother (widow) Sarah Ann are completely wrong, but the household next door is a bricklayer called George James Williams.

So, going back to the original post - who on earth died in the explosion? We've accounted for quite a number of them.

Or just George.

If that death that I posted for George was correct (just before son's marriage?) and it was an explosion, you can look to see who else died in the same quarter in Hendon. But if they are just unrelated tenants in a house there are too many. There are even, probably, mothers and children dying in childbirth registered at similar times etc

I wonder if this was Arthur, he is a scholar at the Industrial school, birth place matches that of Frederick & Annie on the 1881 census:

Arthur Williams
Age: 7
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1884
Gender: Male
Where born: Sudbury
Civil parish: Lewisham
County/Island: London
Country: England
Street Address:

Occupation:

Condition as to marriage:

If he had been in trouble, it could explain his admission into the army once old enough.

1891 Holly Lane Willesden
"Holly Lane was off Church Road and lead to what was known as Neasden Power Station. I don't know if the power station is still there but that is where a lot of electricty was generated just for the London Transport Service for the tube trains. To get to Holly Lane it was about half-way down Church Road opposite the Post Office for Curzon Crescent."
