An Ancestry tree has the above Margaret, in that she is born 2.11.1912 and died as stated above - no spouse. Birthplace not given.
A daughter is shown, no details given as presumably still living. If this is not you might be worth contacting the tree owner.

You should also add these names to your tree and apply for that death cert. The informant might be Patricia.

As you have her birth details, I assume you know who her parents were? Have you checked to see if she had any siblings, and from them any descendants? If you can track down other family members they might have information, worth a try.
Have you checked other members' trees and added all names to your own tree, as suggested by Rose?
