Hi John - to add to Tom's info here are the certificate details for your mum's marriage and death, there may be more clues to her origin or other relatives there.  I've checked the appropriate births in the England & Wales BMD and also the 1911 census but unfortuantely its inconclusive - there was a "Grace Ferrol" born in 1900 in West Derby, Lancashire AND ALSO a "Grace Farrell" born in Q1, 1902 in Holborn, London but whether one of these is your mother is not certain.

This is a shot in the dark, but did you have a brother or half brother George Francis born in 1922?
