Hi Cara.
If you aren't already familiar with it, get to know Freebmd. This a free to search and shows you birth, marriage and death indexes for England and Wales from Sept 1837 (when registration began) to roughly 1955/60.
You can search for births using surname and mother's maiden name, for example.
Go there and have some fun just playing around!

There are Turley-O'Rourke births in Mid'bro 1912-1935, plus

Births Sep 1919 (>99%)
Turley Doreen O'Rouste Middlesbro. 9d 968

Births Dec 1922 (>99%)
Turley Francis O'Rouke Middlesbro' 9d 971

Which look like your gran's siblings.

I think you need your gran's b.cert to confirm her parents - whom I suspect are:
Using http://www.teesvalley-indexes.co.uk/
Result Year Surname Forename Initial Ref Number Click to contact
1 1911 O'ROURKE CATHERINE M-AA-J83-0-0156 Middlesbrough
2 1911 TURLEY JOHN M-AA-J83-0-0156 Middlesbrough
[I think the code M-AA-J refers to the Middlesbrough registrar's own register, so this would likely be a rego office marr, or an RC marr the registrar had to attend]

and then their m.cert to get their fathers' names - my guess is these are your g-grandparents:

??????????

Marriages Jun 1911
O'Rourke Catherine - Middlesbro 9d 1206
Turley John - Middlesbro' 9d 1206



Probably not if children only born in the 30s.

O'rourke is a very Irish name so possibly married there
