I believe the profiles should be merged, with the vital dates of Nye-1174 overiding. 

There is indeed the death of a George Frederick Nye in Steyning recorded in the GRO Death register for 1868. His age is given as 2!

The marriage date of 31 May 1840 at the Parish Church of St. Mary, Lambeth is supported by London Marriages Index and also:

A George Nye's death is noted for 1889, Lambeth age 74.
