It isn't a certainty that John Henry was still living in 1917, not everyone stated on their marriage cert if their father was deceased or not, I know some of my ancestors didn't state deceased on theirs, although I knew that their father was deceased by the time of their marriage.
St Georges Hall doesn't hold any public records there, you would be better going around the corner to the Records office in the Library in William Brown Street, it is on the third floor there, they have directories, burial, church records, mainly on microfilm, you don't have to book to have a look at them, the library staff are very helpful and I am sure they will help you out.

I have had a look through the 1901 census for Annie and John Smith, I thought I had found them with a daughter Eleanor age 7 in 1901. The age for Annie would have been right, born 1873, but I had to rule that family out because her brother was living with them George McCulloch, so that put that to bed.
I was wondering if Annie may have died and that is why her daughter was living with her grandparents. I found this death reg, but there is no way of knowing if she was your Annie.
Name: Annie Smith
Estimated birth year: abt 1873
Registration Year: 1895
Registration Quarter: Jul-Aug-Sep
Age at Death: 22

I can't find any sign of John Henry anywhere.
