Just a comment that may possibly help. At least one line of the
Shropshire and mid-Wales HAMER family changed their name to HAMMOND.
In the early 19th century I think. Most lines, including mine, kept
the name Hamer or Hamar.

A couple of things I have thought of:
Mary's death may be as: Mary R HALL (so Rayne not much use)
If Mary's husband William was deceased by 1922, Mary may have remarried
(I could not find another marriage, but that doesn't mean there isn't one!)
Have you tried contacting the cemeteries in the area where they last
lived? Am not sure where you live, but if you are in the UK, might just
be a quick phone call to success.
Any of the Yorkshire Family History Libraries will, I am sure, give you
loads of help and suggestions on how to find Mary's death.
It may just be a case of searching things like: phone books, electoral
rolls, directories etc.
Hope this helps.
