Hi,

I haven't found a marriage but there is a notice in the London Gazette about her estate. It's on page 15247,

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/49542/page/1

It shows her name as POLLARD formerly KNELL, Winifred Emma. and that she is a widow.

Regards,
Daisy

It also shows her address as Barton Manor in Headington.  This site suggests it belonged at some point to a Graham Pollard who inherited it from his aunt:

 - also listed as the address in 1977 for Henry Graham Pollard died 1976

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Pollard
 - this gentleman was married previously but separated in the 1970s, so possibly he and Winifred were only together for a short period before his death.
