Notes for William Henry SKINNER:

We can see William and his family in the 1881 census return living at 42 New Compton St, London, Middlesex, England:
William SKINNER Head 41 St James, Middlesex, England General Porter (Out Of Employ)
Sarah A. SKINNER Wife 28 Woodstock, Oxford, England
George SKINNER Son 6 St Giles, Middlesex, England Scholar
Ellen SKINNER Daur 5 St Giles, Middlesex, England Scholar
Alice SKINNER Daur 8 m St Giles, Middlesex, England
Sarah CAMERON Lodger 49 St Giles, Middlesex, England

It's quite possibly this William Henry Skinner who we can see dying at St Giles Jan-Mar 1882, ages 41 years. There is no sign of William Henry or Sarah Ann Skinner in 1901, so maybe he died and she remarried.
