Well, it is the right Gladys death in 1955
Probate Calendar 1955
Scott Gladys Irene of 33 Avenue-road Brentford Middlesex (wife of Henry James Scott)
died 11 November 1955 at St. Lukes Hospital Paddington, Probate to Nellie Gertrude Groves.

So there had been no divorce. Maybe Henry did marry again in 1957!

Ian, thanks so much. Yes you the correct date of birth for Henry James and for Gladys, they things I do know for sure.
Your idea that he did remarry when free to do so is very probable as I was told by my uncle years ago that Gladys never divorced.
Wonder if Mary Helen had any children with Henry? In the newspaper he did say he was supporting a woman and child in Richmond in 1942.
This is so exciting, you have no idea how long I have been trying to find out about Harry.

Hi
Yes, according the 1942 newspaper report Harry had another child. I guess we mustn't assume that Mary Helen was the mother.
He was listed with Gladys at 33 Avenue Road in 1938. Gladys was still there on the 1939 electoral roll, and the 1939 Register, but, like sdup, I can't see Harry/Henry anywhere.
1964 + 1965 Richmond
Selwyn Ward, Polling District N
195 Lower Mortlake Road
Scott, Henry J.
Scott, Irene B.
Scott, Mary H.
