You will probably find that much of that archive (Patients) is closed due to the 100 year rule.  Check with the Kent History & Library Centre if you intend making a trip there.

I'm guessing this is her?
Probate Calendar Index 1991
Richardson, Cicely May of 142 Warren Wood Road Rochester Kent died 11 July 1991 Administration Winchester 5 August not exceeding 125000 9152416781F.

Death registration gives a DoB of 17 Feb 1918 which ties up with the Cicely M Brame birth Islington Q1 1918.

Patients or Staff at Oakwood Asylum

Can anybody help, I am trying to trace my husbands grandmother who because of his grandmothers divorce he never met. Her name has been mentioned in relation to Oakwood Asylum although depending on who you are talking to she could have been a patient or a nurse. Her name was Cicely May Brame, but due to various marriages she was also known as Havers, Havers-Watson, Richardson and Hargreaves.

Unfortunately Cicely passed away in the early 90's and I am struggling to find information other than the facts and figures that you get from the births deaths and marriage records. I do know that her mother and father appeared to be publicans in Chatham and Rochester and that from about 1945 onwards she lived in the Medway towns starting in Rochester. If anyone has any memories of Cicely we would love to hear from you.
