Thanks very much for your help Thomas and Constance were my mothers parents so the address given for Alice is probably the correct one now I need to find out if it still exists. Thank you so much for this information Choccy and Brummejan.

Is it your tree on Ancestry? I see he re-married in Alcester in 1921 to an Alice Riddel Coles Allwood, assuming this info is correct. Do you know what became of Alice?

There isn't a direct way as far as I know.
Was he living there when he died though I wonder? If you think he might have been, the death cert might help you.
