Did you look at the 'sold' prices? Try googling the address.

If you can find no reference, try writing to the address and the neighbours to see if anyone knows what's happened to him. A SAE frequently helps with a reply

Check the last known address on http://www.zoopla.co.uk/ to see if it has been sold.
It's always possible that he still lives there but has opted out of the commercial ERs

Look on http://www.thephonebook.bt.com for his surname and area - listings are arranged alphabeticaly so A Brown with before B Brown etc. See if any addresses match with the ER entry

Have you tried looking for his son, as you have a name (and presumably address) for him on the death cert?
Does it say if Kathleen is a widow?
