Hilda's birth record perhaps?

EATHERINGTON, HILDA       LEA 
GRO Reference: 1914  D Quarter in NOTTINGHAM  Volume 07B  Page 592
 
There is a Hilda in the 1939 Register living in Nottingham with two closed records which are probably the two children that were found.  Her birth date is consistent with the above registration.

Looks like she remarried after Albert died

Marriages Mar 1947   
Handley    Herbert    Smith    Nottingham    3c   832   
Smith    Hilda    Handley    Nottingham    3c   832

It doesn't fit in from the point of view of Albert.  I was just indicating that Hilda remarried to Herbert Handley after Albert died.

If you look at the 1939 Register you will see that she has two surnames mentioned, Smith and Handley. This indicates that a woman has married, either for the first time or has had several marriages.

The 1939 Register was updated by the NHS until some time in the 1990s I think.

She was a spinster when she married Albert,so I assume the records get updated to include later marriages.
Thank you again.

Thank you again.

Strictly speaking, the records were changed whenever somebody's name changed.
Not just marriage :D
