It looks like William died in 1914 of an aneurism. His parents' name on the death reg tallies with his birth/1861 census.
There is a report of his death in the newspapers (Trove website). Mentions a Mrs Kinch, but no first name unfortunately.
I checked the available electoral registers/voters lists and it looks like he was living with a Naomi Kinch (if I have the right person).
So did Mary/Maria/Alice pre-decease him?
If Sidney gave his mother's name as Alice when he married then perhaps she was using that as her first name rather than Mary.
