William John Roberts

I am researching William John Roberts, who was born at Bolham, Tiverton on May 17 1899. The son of Walter and Helena (nee Cook) Roberts, he served as a stoker II class in the Royal Navy in 1917, and served at Devonport before joining HMS King Alfred. He returned to the Tiverton area after the war and was still there in 1920, working on a farm at Cove for Frederick Hill. However, I have been unable to establish what happened to him after that. I thought he married Iris Bessie Radford at Stoodleigh Church in 1935 - but the groom was not him. I have been unable to establish when he died or where. All my efforts to trace his movements after 1920 have failed. Can anyone help me with this. I would be very grateful for any potential leads.
