Is Eccleshall near the area Gladys was in?
I did a "wildcard" search on Free BMD
Selected Births 1920-1930
and only put OCKLESHAW in as mothers surname, no other details and the following came up.

December Quarter 1925
EDWARDS Joyce
OCKLESHAW
Ecclesall B. 9c 707

I can see no appropriate matching marriage for the combination of OCKLESHAW/EDWARDS name
, not too hopeful this is right though.

This would not tie in with Gladys dying c. 1948, but I wonder...

1947 WA newspaper death notices for a Frederick Charles Rourke include

"...very dear friend of Mr and Mrs F Ockleshaw, and Graham."
"...father of Neil, father-in-law of Gladys."

A Gladys Rourke, with the same birth year as your Gladys, and same parents' christian names as Frederick Ockleshaw, died in WA in 1979.

A Wilfrid Neil and Gladys Rourke are listed on the 1943 Western Australia Electoral Roll.

No Gladys with Wilfrid (Poultry farmer)on the 1936 Roll.

In 1954 the couple are living at Bedford Park, and Wilfrid's occupation is listed as 'Accountant'.
