I've lost my Grandad!

I've been trying to find info on my Great,Great Grandad but he seems to have disappeared after the 1881 census. The 1881 census states that Frank Woods (my g,g,grandad), a miller (born Frenlingham, Suffolk 1846) was living in Everton, Liverpool with his wife Janet and 2 children. He isn't with his wife on the 1891 census (maybe someone could verify this - he may have been elsewhere on the night) I assume that he died between the census' but cannot find a death for him. I've looked on freebmd but there is no Frank Woods of the right age, I have however found a Francis Woods who died in Liverpool in 1890 but it gives his age as 40 (he would have been 44)On the 1837 site I've found the death of a Francis Woods in 1886 in Prestwich and gives the age 39 (possible)How can I find out if either of these belong to my family and if they don't, how can someone just disappear?
