We find out that Cook's surname is Braithwaite earlier in P&M when she leaves a note at the Dogs Home.

"Cook," said Dorothea, reading a scrap of paper by the flick-
ering light. "And I've gone and missed her." She gave Dick the
scrap of paper and he read:

Hope your makin do. If owts wanting you can tell Jacky.

M. Braithwaite.

It seems odd that she would write a note in dialect, it sounds like something she would say out loud but surely she would have been taught "proper English" for more formal things even short notes.
