Thank you. Does it not give any relationship re Elspeth?

The only one I can see in Somerset is a death:
Elspeth Webb died April 1984 West Super Mare.

Her birth date is given as 23rd April 1894

I wonder if she was Raymond/Thomas’ partner?

Tenth May 1955, Shortlands, Sand Road, Wedmore.

Raymond Caradine (otherwise Thomas Harold) WEBB

No wonder we couldn't find the death on the GRO site!

Quite likely!
And her death is also indexed under two names ;)

There's a news story in both the Wells Journal and the Cheddar Valley Gazette, 12 Dec 1958, about Mrs. Elspeth Webb, a widow, of Shortlands, Wedmore.
Was she said to be 50? Fined for a driving offence.

And her death is also indexed under two names

The other name is Badhwar
Possibility for her in Worthing in the free index to the 1939 Register.

Marriage?
March 1925 Steyning 2b 500
Badhwar, Fateh C - spouse Crawford
Crawford, Elspeth F. - spouse Badhwar

Is Mr Badhwar the guy with a wikipedia entry?

@Heywood,

Unfortunately, it doesn't, it just lists her as the informant.

@JonW65, Interesting to read about Elspeth, another woman to take his name and not be married to him.

@Jonw65,

Now that is interesting... an OBE and an MBE...
