Well they are all in London
Londoners did move frequently - usually in same area But a suburb or so
change was likely
But your folk really shifted around
That is just what they did - if the census has the results then that is
what they did

I just searched
for him "possibly" married to a Mary and plenty of results
In FreeBMD you click the page number in the reference for the hit list
and a list of potential couples appears

What you need to do is to find the birth of the children and order a
birth certificate - this should show the mother's maiden name and
perhaps also a previous married name if any
Then go back to FreeBMD and see if that name appears with same GRO
reference as Joseph
