There is always the possibility that they didn't actually marry but lived as a married couple.  Alternatively they met somewhere on Winifred's travels after 1965 and married there.  She seems to have been a well travelled lady.

Any family members who may have known about any marriage are probably long dead.

Anyway I am happy with what has been discovered.  Seems like Albert died before his housekeeper who was my grandmother Bessie England, when he was the vicar of Bitton, Glos.

Thanks for finding what you have.  Fleshes out the picture a bit.
