No arrests have been made and her death is being treated as suspicious.
Neighbours say two teachers raised the alarm when she failed to pick her two young sons, who are in reception and year 5, from primary school.
One local, 67, said: “I know she was supposed to pick up her children, two young boys, from the local school but did not come so they raised the alarm.
“The two teachers came over here with the officers when they crashed through the door.
“She has lived here for 10 years.
“She was a nice lady and we never had any problems.
“I know she had a partner, and an ex-partner who visited sometimes.
“We’re in complete shock because things like that do not happen around here.”
Another neighbour, 44, said: “I did hear something in the afternoon, maybe about 2pm, I heard a male voice go ‘you’re not getting in, you’re not getting in’
“I don’t know what happened, or even if it was connected.
“I heard screaming, I heard shouting, but that’s quite normal for around here.
“But the next thing I know that same flat was getting the door smashed through by police later that day.”
Police confirmed the victim was declared dead at the scene after being found with stab injuries.
Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by officers.
The Met added: “The death is being treated as suspicious and detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command have been informed.
“Enquiries are ongoing and a crime scene remains in place. At this early stage of the investigation, no arrests have been made.”
Anyone with information can call police on 101.
