Gordon, it's a bit strange why Mary Jane was buried as a Smailes rather than a Harrison. She is in the death registers as Harrison and I've noticed a probate record for her. I don't know if you have it already but it states:
"Mary Jane Harrison of 8 Blackwood Street, Amble (wife of Alexander Gordon Armstrong Harrison), died 26 January 1940. Probate to Joseph Ernest Archer, solicitor and Margaret Howell (wife of Benjamin Rodney Howell)...."
