Trying to find the maiden name

Trying to find the maiden name

William Collier married on 24th November 1951 to a Mary Ann Louisa Beckingham (widow) on the marriage certificate the father's name is missing. I know that Mary was born on the 2nd March 1886 and died on 21st September 1972. I have managed to find her on the 1939 census and she is married to John Beckingham. I would really like to find out Mary Ann Louisa's maiden name, any help would be much appreciated.

It will be easier for someone to help if you'll say where in the world the couple lived and married. When you say 1939 census by any chance do you mean the 1939 Register of England and Wales?

I would start by trying to order the marriage record for John Beckingham and Mary. That should have her maiden name.
