Look what I tripped over while looking for something else :-)

Alber Dixon died 10th December 1926
and he left a will with the sum total of £573.7s.3d
this to go to Alice.
The home address at the time was
79 Griffen Street
Witton, Blackburn.

Alice's maiden name was Fielding
and they married in 1881.
