Have you tried searching for her death using just her birth date and first name...it is possible she changed her surname but didn't actually remarry. I can't see her in the 1939 register, but she may have been indexed under a later surname

There is an Adelaide M. Woodcock marrying a Walter J. KNIGHT March Quarter 1952 Chatham Registration District Ref: vol 5b pg 867

And an Adelaide Mary Knight died 1969 Chatham Registration district but her birth date was 16th October 1897 (Ref: Chatham Reg district vol 5f pg 629). But as it is a death registration, the year of birth could be out.

 

It must be the correct death as cross checking with the 1939 Register gives Adelaide M Knight (Woodcock) b.16th October 1896 at 74 Grange Road, Rochester ( Ref: RG101/1769I/017/44 Letter Code: DIMI) 

i have her birth 16 october 1893 in chawleigh not sure if that helps

Adelaide's baptism 5th November 1893 at Chawleigh doesn't give her birth date unfortunately, and her birth was registered in 1893 (Armed Forces Birth Indexes) so she may have just forgot what year she was born.

 

edit posted at same time - yes, it is the same Adelaide, she just  got the year wrong in 1939, and whoever registered her death didn't know her year of birth. 

So she didn't marry a 4th time, but may have lived with someone as if she was married. The only way to know would be to locate Electoral Registers for her addresses.

i have just checked for birth on https://www.freebmd.org.uk and it shows her being registered in december quarter 1893 crediton, devon
