The Pansy Irene Harrison was maiden name Seaby - she appears to have married Albert Victor Harrison though I can't see marriage - living Shepperton area when she dies- dtr who appears on electoral registers for Shepperton in 1949 has mmn Seaby on GRO index.

Can't find a marriage either, but there is a newspaper report of the death of a John Seaby in 1943 (I think he is Pansy's father - age and occupation match censuses). It says he had two daughters both living in Shepperton.

I wonder if your Pansy returned to India after the death of her husband

I wondered that, but Stanley, Stanley jnr (son from first marriage) and family left India straight after Independence. I can't find her birth in England, so I suspect she may have been born in India. I have found a De Lamos on the 1911 census who gives his birthplace as Goa (Portuguese India) so that is another possibility given the number of De Lamos with what I thought were Spanish forenames, but could quite easily be Portuguese.
Pansy would have been in England only three years when Stanley died, probably without any family of her own. Stanley's two brothers, one of his sisters, a sister in law (widow of oldest brother) and a nephew lived within 10 miles of where he and Pansy settled, but they may not have got on too well.
