in 1911 she was living in Kenley, Shropshire
can anyone help please

Slightly baffled. I already told you Elizabeth Margaret Jones married George Talbot Roberts, 6th December 1894, Kenley, Shropshire.
Atcham was the registration district. It was abolished in 1935, becoming part of the new Shrewsbury district.
George was widowed in the 1939 Register
Only death matching the date in your diary is this one
June qtr 1939 Shrewsbury 6a 767
Roberts, Margaret Mercy
age 66
(age is about right!)

Margaret Mercy - not a lot of them being born circa 1872
There's this one
Birth, Sep 1872 Bridgnorth 6a 606
Jones, Margaret Mercy
Mother's maiden surname - (Has the dreaded dash in the new GRO birth index, where she is indexed as Margaret Mary! So likely illegitimate)

Obviously that birth district is not the right one for Halesowen, although not far away, but she did say her father John was a farmer, which didn't make a lot of sense. So might be worth checking out. Maybe she messed about with her names.
In 1891 there is a Margaret Jones, 18, born Halesowen, a servant in Much Wenlock. Which is very close indeed to Kenley, where the marriage was.

Death, June 1939 6a 767
Roberts, Margaret M.
age 66

Rather odd Postem on FreeBMD, submitted 21/02/2017, most certainly not by me
"The following correction has been suggested: Given names: Elizabeth m . The source given for this is: It's the only relevant death date for the above person"

Although vnb80 has rejected my theory (which may be wrong of course)
