Hi Susan,
I hope you are still monitoring this site. According to "The Stage" archives I found the following:

June 1941 to Sept 1942 - with The Players at the Royalty, Morcambe.
Nov 1944 and Dec 1945 - with the Fortesque Players at the Royal, Rochdale and the Hulme Hippodrome.
July 1946 - with Evlyne Dissart's Repertory Company at the Pavilion, Sheerness
June 1947 - with Stanley Ravenscroft at Colwyn Bay
Aug 1947 - with the Night Errant's Co. at the New Royal, Norwich
May 1949 to Aug 1950 - with Harry Hanson's Court Players at the Empire, Peterborough as actor and director.
1953-57 - became a literary agent and play presenter
1957-78 (at least) Director of Entertainment with Islington Borough Council

Maybe you know all this! Nothing in the archives about all those other places you mention.
