Not seeing anything.

9 trees on Ancestry with him in - some have him up to 1891, others not even that much. None after 1891

Try names reversed or just using the second name - like William Edgar you were also enquiring about who was Edgar on occasion

If it were my search, I would be inclined to buy a copy of the 1937 death cert suggested by Greyghost.
