Is she still alive?  If she was born circa 1925, chances are she's redacted on the 1939 Register. So you won't find her (due to the 100 years and one day closure rule).

Are you checking with her DoB and/or her first name(s)? Another reason may be her DoB on the 1939 Register is incorrect. Whether by the actual birth year, or birth date. So when searching, take that into account.

What information on her father did your grandmother give on her marriage registration? Was it her adopted father's details?

As Hillhurst has asked, is she deceased?

If so, depending on her death year, there might be a birth date to consider using for searches.

As she was a teenager when adopted, did your grandmother reside with any relatives or friends prior to her 1942 adoption? Do you know anything of her pre-1942 life, as such? Names, places, relatives, occupations?
