It is just possible that as he had 4 or 5 children that if he was involved in a fall or had illness that he was admitted to the Barnstaple Union Workhouse [many workhouses had a small infirmary]. If his death occurred there especially as the widow would need financial support that the workhouse master arranged the burial in Barnstaple itself.
