Witnesses are often friends or family.
There is no way to be sure who they are.

Hi

Quote
but what I don't no is Ada walker birth name before she married my great grandad George walker

You can find that one of 2 ways.  You can look up the 1916 birth for Hannah Walker on freebmd which will give you Ada's maiden name

If you know when and where George and Ada married - you can look up their marriage on freebmd which will give her maiden name

Unfortunately - you have given no details of Hannah's birthplace and as you have posted on the travelling people board - there are no clues there

A possibility is this marriage if Hannah was born in Birmingham

September qtr 1909   
BYFIELD    Ada        Birmingham    6d   3    
WALKER    George Herbert        Birmingham    6d   3

There are a number of Walker/Byfield births on freebmd

You need to look them up on the 1911 census to check their details
hi I can't seem to find george herbert walker birth place as I always been told that george camed from ireland tipperary I can't find him any where I even tried to Google it and nothing has comed up please help me thank you

Then maybe you should put it aside until the 1921 is released and hope that Hannah is enumerated with her parents.

It may be that they were not enumerated at all in 1911. There is nothing to be done if that is the case.

I'd also dismiss any rumoured birthplace until it is backed up by hard evidence

You also seem to think that Hannah had 3 sisters, one called Dorothy.
I can't see any evidence for Dorothy.

Births Mar 1912  Walker    Lilian F    Byfield    Birmingham    6d   294
Births Dec 1914  Walker    George H    Byfield    Aston    6d   829
Births Mar 1917 Walker    Hannah    Byfield    Aston    6d   736
Births Jun 1920 Walker    Arthur    Byfield    Birmingham    6d   514   
Births Mar 1922  Walker    Emily    Byfield    Warwick    6d   1526    
Births Mar 1924   Walker    Violet A    Byfield    Uxbridge    3a   62
Births Jun 1928 Walker    Doris E    Byfield    Birmingham N.    6d   514

Kirsty, you seem to be failing to grasp that we "KNOW" nothing.
Until you get certificates, or other records, it's all conjecture.

I urge you to start looking on freebmd for early deaths if the names of your mother's maternal aunts and uncles seem  unfamiliar. (ie these are siblings of your mother's mother)
There is also the possibility that the family called them by another (pet) name, so don't jump to conclusions
