Instead of finding Harry's death Record (I searched Henry R.Harris' as well),
I found this rather awkward record... which fits perfectly, and far from dead.

1911 Eastville Bristol, Gloucestershire, England
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
George Lewis Knight Head M 43 ARMY PENSIONER COMMISSIONAIRE. Bristol, Gloucestershire
Lucy Ellen Knight Wife F 38 Boscorough Bridge, Lancashire
Harry Ralph Harris Nephew M 7 Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

So, if Ralph is Jessie's son, then could Lucy be her sister ?

Try to find young Jessie in the earlier Census's; and yes we find sister Lucy Ellen too !!

But struggling to find James in later Census'.
??

------------

Back to the Harris family, I'm struggling to find any of them in later records eg marriages and deaths. Do we know what happened to any of them ?.
They seem to have travelled around a lot !
I suggest the 1939 Register is worth searching if possible.

Hope this helps
J.
