No children showing on freebmd

Her birth reg is Fanny but she married as Frances. 

There are 2 Fanny Needham deaths - one b about 1877 died 1951 the other about 1878 died 1954

There is a Frances Needham death in 1958 - birthyear about 1877

None are in the Bromley or Hampshire areas but unless you know for certain where the couple lived in later years there is no way of knowing if she is one of those entries.

There doesn't seem to be a WW1 death for Charles

Have you looked for a Fanny/Frances Needham marriage as she may have re-married after Charles died

There is an Olive M Middle birth in 1915 in Bromley - mmn also Middle.  As the marriage to Needham was in the September qtr I assume Olive was illegitimate

It may be that buying her marriage certificate to Charles might help in finding him before the marriage.  :-\  Without knowing his age we have plenty of choices.

She is in Fulham in 1901 RG13 piece 63 folio 32 page 3
Ancestry have her transcribed as Fanny Kiddle
