She remarried sometime after her divorce from Sir Malcolm and lived in Buntingford, Herts. She is buried with her second husband in the churchyard at Aspenden. She often visited my Nan at 41 High Street in Buntingford and would shop for her, if necessary. She came to see me married at the church in Aspenden in 1971 and gave me a wedding present, one of her own wedding gifts from her marriage to Sir Malcolm. She was a lovely lady, who does not deserve the scorn poured upon her by some.
