She was granted a decree nisi on 8 March 1886 and a final decree on 14 December 1896. The divorce papers (at ancestry.com) indicate that the decree was granted on the grounds of "adultery coupled with cruelty towards the petitioner." Emily's petition for divorce mentions three women with whom her husband was alleged to have committed adultery, Alice Alwood, Lydia Campbell and another, unnamed.
