UPDATE

LITHERLAND,DOREEN


www.tennisforum.com/64654169-post3762.html

Correct Christian name to Dorothy

Born Dorothy Millicent Litherland 17th April 1923 West Derby, Liverpool
Married John M. Cain Q3 1959 Crosby.
Died 9th June 2005 Liverpool.
Source British Lawn Tennis and Squash Magazine August 1949, page 25 mentions Mrs McSwigin and her sister Miss D.M.Litherland.
Reference on www.ancestry.co.uk shows Joan Patricia Litherland born Q3 1919 West Derby,(died 24th February 1965) mother Roughley. From this shows sister Dorothy. Seems to be shown as Doreen in 1946 Wimbledon results such as John Barrett's book but this is incorrect.
