The MC would say if a divorce had taken place, so that may be the best place to start.

Marriages Dec 1958 (>99%)
CLIFTON Ernest E LEACH Tonbridge 5b 1550
LEACH Kathleen H CLIFTON Tonbridge 5b 1550

Less than 0.02% of case files after 1937 have survived. See the following link which also tells you how to request a copy of a decree absolute. It won't give the 'grounds' for the divorce.
