This is not from registers, but from the 1871 census. I think he may have been recorded as Benjamin Wildsmith, not
Isaac. He is in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton, he is 29, his wife is Mary, born Tetbury, Gloucestershire and he has a son
Samuel aged 4. All of which fits your Isaac, I believe. He's a carpenter but that doesn't rule out being an
undertaker. I haven't checked any other censuses but it may be interesting to look for Benjamin and see if he fits.
(I found them by looking for all Marys born in Gloucestershire and living in Essex - there weren't that many)
