That seems correct thankyou so much, just trying to find who was Albert Blakes first marriage, he remarried in 1918, a widower, I think aged 43, when his second marriage to  Gillingham in 1918, no worries,  will still keep looking, thankyou.Margaret.

Lewis Gillingham in Aylesbury  is a brother of Rosetta Gillingham who married Blake.
I have no idea who Mary Wakelin is.

I think that Marriage of Marie G to Edmund Mead you found must be correct.

I think the Dorothy M  m Reynolds was a wild goose chase (which was a shame becaus I was a bit interested in a Reynolds connection)

OP trying to identify Albert BLAKE.  Presuming he died between 1921 and 1924 one I can see that fits the age suggested is

Deaths Mar 1922
Blake    Albert    50    Pancras    1b   60

I wonder what his occupation at the 1924 marriage is
Added ..if he was a licensed victualled in poplar, then his wife Maude died in 1917and they had no children
