Death listed as a latin sounding name, "Morbus Cordis Anasarea" something like that, I've been told its a bit of a dustbin term if they are not entirely sure.

The re-marriage certificate does say she is a widow.

Update:

Spent time at the Dudley Archive office, established he did die in 1927, however this opens up another mystery as Great Gran married in 1917 and is listed as a "widow" not true!

I think I will try and find out if the marriage was somehow dissolved, but not sure how to go about this, suggestions please?

Kind regards

Oh dear.  Maybe Great Gran just left him then and when she met someone else she wanted to marry claimed she had been widowed. 

I don't know about dissolving at that time but perhaps there would be something in newspapers.

Nothing to do with Staffordshire but I had a couple, in Yorkshire, who obtained a divorce in 1871 (yes, that's right 1871).  They both remarried in 1873 - she had reverted to her maiden name and "Condition" was stated to be "Divorced Woman".  He remarried as a "Widower".
