Well I would start by getting the marriage certificate to get the fathers names of the bride and groom.

Marriages Sep 1922   
HALLIDAY    William F    Lever    Weymouth    5a   792
LEVER    Nellie    Halliday    Weymouth    5a   792

The cert. can be ordered from the GRO website for 9.25p.

You will need to register before you order, or rather your friend.

Does your friend know anything at all about the grandparents?  William's birthplace, occupation?

Sadly not. They were both dead before she was born.

Presumably your friend knows something of their married life - how many children, where they were settled etc?

I can see one (female) Halliday/Lever birth registered in Salisbury in 1927, then no more until the 1940s-1950s.
