Winifred in 1939 was at 120 Ebury St, Westminster - which I think is Belgravia? Maybe not terrifically posh, though, since there's a couple of police constables and a hotel waiter among her co-residents. She's retired and still single, and dies there in 1945. Leaves c £620. Admin to Constance Marion Aldridge, widow.
This seems to be the CM Aldridge who witnesses the Gabe/Jennings marriage and in fact it seems to be JRG's daughter, for Constance marries George Aldridge, merchant, in 1900 aged 19 and her dad is JRG.
How many more offspring of JRG are going to pop up?

Reason: spolling mistook
I wonder if the pneumonia was a complication from the post-War flu epidemic.
I suspect that Constance Marion Aldridge nee Gabe was in fact 'Caroline' from 1891. In 1939 she is living in Hove, birth date Jan 27th 1881. In 1954 she marries Edward S Pratt in Surrey, and dies in Horsham in 1973 leaving £48000.
