Winifred's Mother had died. Winifred was alienated from her own Father when he had been convinced by his new girl friend to put Nan 'into service' as a maid.
Winifred Louise Clayton met Gilbert George Troke when he was in the hospital recuperating from his wound suffered at Sanctuary Wood in 1916. It is reasonable to think that after having married Winifred in England, Gil would have travelled home in a troop ship - hence probably little record. While Winifred came over separately (on a Cunard ship). It appears that Gil was relieved from duty because of his wound (regardless of what the sos date is since many were sos at home).
Winifred worked for GECO making ammunition during the war.
See note to Auntie Winnie" from "Little Harry". From Nephew, Harry Brandon? Son of Gertrude Maud Clayton and George Brandon.
After Edith Lucy Rose Wright aka Queenie died in 1946, William Lupton married Winifred Louise Clayton, Queenie's Aunt in 1947.
