Who was her husband and what was his job?

I can see a birth for an Edward Herman Killington in 1909 in Hackney (freebmd).
Have you found the family in 1911?
Does that say how long Alwine had been married?

 - if the Edward b. 1909 is yours, you should be able to find them on the 1911 census.
That should show you (if you pay for the full details) how long they were married, and what her husband's occupation was.  It may give her place of birth as something more detailed than just "Germany" if you're lucky.

His occupation is important because it will give you hints about how they might have met: if he was a sailor or soldier or had some occupation that involved travelling, it's more likely they met overseas.
