Jennifer married in Kingsclere, so at least one parent was still living there then.

There seems to be only one Frank Simpson connected with Kingsclere - and that's the one who married Margaret.

Frank's death?

Frank Simpson
in the England & Wales, Civil Registration Death Index, 1916-2007
Name: Frank Simpson
Death Age: 51
Birth Date: abt 1911
Registration Date: Jan 1962
[Feb 1962]
[Mar 1962]
Registration Quarter: Jan-Feb-Mar
Registration district: Kingsclere
Inferred County: Hampshire
Volume: 6b
Page: 491


His birth:

Frank Simpson
in the England & Wales, Civil Registration Birth Index, 1837-1915
Name: Frank Simpson
Registration Year: 1910
Registration Quarter: Apr-May-Jun
Registration district: Kingsclere
Inferred County: Hampshire
Volume: 2c
Page: 266


All of which fits with the 1939 register.

Death of his wife Margaret:

Margaret Jane Simpson
in the England & Wales, Civil Registration Death Index, 1916-2007
Name: Margaret Jane Simpson
Death Age: 91
Birth Date: 2 Feb 1912
Registration Date: Apr 2003
Registration district: Hampshire North
Inferred County: Hampshire
Register Number: C5A
District and Subdistrict: 503/1A
Entry Number: 247


William Simpson on the 1939 register doesn't seem to be Frank & Margaret's son - DOB in March 1931.
The name George has been added after the name William .

There's a William G Simpson born in the right quarter, in Marylebone.
Probable parents Thomas and Emily H (nee Armson) married in Willesden in 1926
.
Frank had a brother Thomas, birth reg 1st qr 1903 Kingsclere.

Here are Thomas and Emily in Willesden in 1939 - his DOB fits with Frank's brother's birth reg.
No children or closed records listed with them.
So I suggest William George is Frank and Margaret's nephew.

Thomas Simpson
in the 1939 England and Wales Register
Name: Thomas Simpson
Gender: Male
Marital status: Married
Birth Date: 29 Nov 1902
Residence Year: 1939
Address: 390A High Rd
Residence Place: Willesden, Middlesex, England
Occupation: Grocers Manager
Schedule Number: 247
Sub Schedule Number: 1
Enumeration District: BXAJ
Registration district: 129/1
Inferred Spouse: Emily Simpson
Household Members:
Name
Thomas Simpson
Emily Simpson

Emily died in Basingstoke in 1992.
Thomas seems to have died in Lancaster in 1973, unless there's another Thomas Simpson with the same DOB.

Judith -
I know it seems a silly question, but are you quite sure your aunt's name was Mary Elsie ?

As you'll have seen from the replies above, the only marriage we can find of possible parents of Jennifer and Margaret indicates that her name was Margaret Jane.
