It is the 1930 Electoral Roll and what I didn't notice before is that Charles Shepherd is also with Ada and Ellen Cooke.

Yippee!

That ties in nicely with death registrations:
CORKE Charles age 85, Sep qtr 1934 Yarmouth vol 4b p1
CORKE Eleanor, age 81, Mar qtr 1931 Yarmouth vol 4b p14

Given that Ada CORKE (born c1884) is on the 1911 census I looked for marriages in Norfolk after 1911 - nothing.
I looked for deaths 1911-1983  Only one:
CORKE Ada M age 78, Dec qtr 1968 Yarmouth vol 4b p614
but this ties in with a marriage:
Sep qtr 1913 Yarmouth vol 4b p12 - WESTGATE Ada M to CORK Bertie
so it can be eliminated

The case for Ada CORKE being the same person as Ada Hannah SHEPHERD is getting stronger.

I am now checking off every England/Wales marriage for Ada to Mr SHEPHERD (there are none in Norfolk)

In 1899 Ada's brothers, George, Bertie and Victor were all at Northgate Boys School Great Yarmouth.
Admitted by their father Charles.

Same mother's maiden name for Ada Hannah.

I wonder if it worth getting in touch with FindMyPast to see if they will confirm the closed record on the 1939 register as Raymond Shepherd? I know they say they must have a death certificate but if the death record is provided just maybe they would confirm it is Raymond even if they don't redact the record.
I can't find a marriage under Cork/e/ for Ada and I can't find a birth for Raymond mmn Cork/e.

There is one
Sep 1921 Rochford 4a 1339
Corke, Raymond S.   
mother Corke

Perhaps the S is for Shepherd!

The redacted one on 1939 would not be Raymond. Only living people are redacted.
If it was Raymond It would be listed and havea death cert no written on second page
Dow/Dowe Norfolk and Suffolk
Mulley/Wilden Suffolk
Loome/lombe Norfolk

Would this be routinely done with servicemen killed in action?  Who would be allowed to edit the register and who would inform them of a death?

(I don't know a lot about the 1939 Register, so these may be naive questions.)

As we have already established, Ada SHEPHERD was at Belfort Place OFF ST NICHOLAS ROAD, in 1939 and the Electoral Roll 1930.  In 1911 Ada CORK with her family at Coniston Square - again OFF ST. NICHOLAS ROAD.  So the two addresses were very close, it's looking more like she could be the same person.
Robbins - Wolverhampton.
Spooner - Monmouthshire & Wolverhampton.
Warner & Loundes - Dudley/Smethwick.
Dod(g)son - Heysham/Liverpool/Wolverhampton
