If she signed as Helen Thorley in 1935 then we would need to find someone who was either born with that surname or had married into in by 1935.  I am not finding anyone obvious.

No I don't think so as she was thorley in 1935, but thank you. I found one born in 1903, but as say sure if maiden or married name. She would I assume have been in Deal at the.time.

Perhaps she wasn't local. Is it definitely Thorley? Not Thurley?

The writing is quite curled but it definitely looks like a closed 0.

I don't want to confuse things for you but a Godparent did not have to be present - someone could stand proxy on their behalf

They also could just be friends or neighbours

Helen Thorley was the only recorded witness at St Andrew's church, Deal on 10th June 1935 at the baptism of Hazel Beryl Howis, daughter of William & Alice Howis, Collier of 113, College Road, Deal.
I can find no record of Helen's baptism in records of other churches so it must be assumed that she was baptised in another parish.
