Hello JD,

According to the Public Record Office, copies of decrees nisi and absolute can be obtained - for a fee, but it looks as though the actual case files for the time you are interested in may have been destroyed.

Here's a link to their information leaflet -  http://www.rootschat.com/links/066z/   

Another alternative may be local newspapers, which sometimes reported divorce actions.
