Sadly her birth is before formal adoption therefore unlikely any papers exist. She could have been taken in by a family member or friend of the family or arranged by the Church.
Her marriage cert may show if she gave a name for her father, the marriage entry I gave was just a PR transcript and it didnít mention any other details.

The only other alternative would be wait until 1921 census to see who she was living with at the time.

Are there any decendants who would be willing to undertake a dna test?

I did basic searches on ScotlandsPeople for a Frances Dorothy Kemp, just using the surname/ just using Frances Dorothy/ Frances in Glasgow/Lanark/anywhere but no result of any significance. Of course she may have been told she was born Scotland but wasn't. As has been said, if she was 'adopted' prior to 1927 it would have been an informal arrangement so no paperwork will exist. Even later if a family member or friend took her in it it may nor have gone through legal channels. She could also have been illegitimate.
Getting the marriage certificate may give some helpful information, if she told the truth. It may be that if she named her father/adoptive father and his occupation he could be identified on the 1939 register.

Jc2red: thanks so much for that. I guess a marriage certificate would be the only chance. Will pass that info on. But would the 1911 census not show anything - unless Scottish laws are different?

Sarah: thereís no one still alive that this research would affect. Theyíve all long gone😞

Crisane: just seen your reply. A lot to ponder on. Thanks
