A great tale, but ...
On the afternoon of 18 December 1914 Margaret Lloyd had visited her solicitor in Islington and made a will in favour of her husband. Later that evening 'John Lloyd' told the owner of the house that he was going out to buy some tomatoes for his wife's supper whilst she took a bath.
... tomatoes in the UK in December 1914? Hothouses?

Nice catch of an interesting detail, to which I can only respond “dunno.”

The British had their conservatories and greenhouses where they grew a lot of stuff all year round.
