St Charles' Hospital is in North Kensington, London. .
 The foundation stone for the hospital was laid in 1879 and it was officially opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales as the St Marylebone Union Infirmary in 1881.
This hospital is still up and running, is in London W10 and is not near Marylebone, more like Notting hill/Kensington, it has connections now with St Mary's hospital Praed St, off Edgware Road,
It was always known as a hospital you went into and didn't come out, fortunately when my father was in this hospital he didn't know it but he didn't come out

R Holland could be a hospital official, doe sit give his/her position, I assume tht this person was responsible for organising  her funeral

PS, Elizabeth Allum should be on electoral registers if anyone can access them for 1926/1927 and 1928 at Daventry Street, I am not sure where NW1 was

Thanks, Louisa Maud.  But R Holland lived at Elizabeth's address - so perhaps a landlord?  Or maybe some sort of care home employee, where Elizabeth was before going into hospital?  Or Elizabeth's latest partner?  But that wording sounds too official to be a partner?

I can't gain anything from present-day streetview of Daventry Street - I think it's been redeveloped since 1927.

Daventry Street is still there, in Marylebone - it's very near York Street, where Elizabeth and William Allum were in 1911.  This further makes me think I've got the right death.

Thanks, Comberton.
So a house of multiple occupation - that fits with Elizabeth being a widow on her own, and probably more or less unknown to the other occupants; at least in terms of details about her life, eg husband's first name and occupation, which were not disclosed on the death certificate.
