Or this one?

Births Sep 1906
Martin Dora Elizabeth E. Grinstead 2b 140

Edit: I think this girl is on the 1911 so maybe not

Speculation is not a good idea.

Brentford and Bexhill are not exactly adjacent, although the householder may have been unaware of the child's correct birthplace

If Dora married, and knew who her father was, his name will be on the marriage cert

How did your friend get back to this census entry?
