This link gives the details of unofficial games played by England including the wartime games.
Hope it helps
A poor crowd at Wembley in 1932 apparently was the reason for playing in Manchester, then after that game they went back to Wembley.

Remember as well that internationals were played same day as a full league programme

In 1924 the England - Scotland game at Wembley was played at the same time as Arsenal, Spurs, West Ham and Fulham were also playing at home in London. This would have had an impact on the crowd, as would the game being all ticket with high ticket prices.

Tickets for the 1924 game are now very rare - I've only ever seen one come up
