Yes, there are two births though for Tom Dooley - 1895 and 1900.

When did your Tom die? You might confirm which one he is by his birth/death date.

Hi,

Free search of the 1939 register has Tom Dooley b. 1900 living in Cheshire with Elizabeth E Dooley b. 1902 and one other person (could be James E Dooley)
