i would like to know if she had any siblings please and if her father remarried if he was a widower and to whom.

Does Martha's marriage certificate give you her fathers occupation?

Do you have the Census records from 1851-1911 for Martha,Adam and family.

Martha's death certificate may give further clues, if Walter was the informant he may not have known his mothers exact age.

It would be beneficial to get a copy of the marriage certificate, it should have both Martha's fathers details and also Adams's fathers details. This will give a good starting point to go backward to find both their families.
