I'm seeking parents of Dorothy King

Dorothy May King 1906-2003 (dorothy Hare) (Dolly)

she married in 1930 in eastbourne Sussex to Walter James Hare 1903-2001.

asking around the family i've found she may have been born in Berkshire.

she died in Eastbourne, Sussex.

her mother or grandmother "might"of been Emma/Emily ,but i can't find any info to back that up.

Dorothy had 3 children. (none of which know/remember their grandparents names unfortunately )

i can't find any way of finding her father's first name . ?? King

Please would anyone have any tips on how i can discover her Parents names ?

Thank you very much

If you buy the marriage cert. it will give you her father's name and occupation which should help find her in 1911 census.

Catherine is right. There are numerous Dorothy May Kings born 1905-1907, including 2 in Berkshire, even supposing that is correct!

if the birth date is correct, the birth that best fits seems to be this one.

Births Sep 1906 King Dorothy May Wantage 2c 297

It ties in well with the 1911 census Catherine posted, which had a mother named Emily.

However the marriage cert should confirm if that line is correct.
