The information I found about Chandos was from 'ancestry' and the Malcolm link was from a google search.

Think you have found some great links, I could not find a marriage. I would still like to find a birth for Sheilagh May to try and establish if she was Irish. The children seem to have been born in Northern Ireland.( although it seems they married in the south...) If these are the right connections so far, I need to establish that Chandos went to Ireland and returned, was it for Sheilagh. I am obviously very inexperienced at this as I have been unable to find the info you have found despite being glued to the computer. I cant find any tthing at all other than a birth for Malcolm Charles Reubens Leigh 09/05/1941. portaferry newtonards.
Thank you so much.

Think father was Chandos Holt Leigh (deceased), Sylvia may have been born in Northern Ireland also possibly a brother Malcolm Charles Reubens Leigh.
Cant find any info to confirm any of this at present.

The London Gazette lists Sheila(gh) as a widow when she dies the following year. Same address as Sylvia.

Jane has Sheilagh May Leigh born 1909, so no Father for Sylvia?

Can't find a marriage or birth for a Sheila M Pettitt that fits though.
