Daisy Dormer (1883 – 1947), born Kezia Beatrice Stockwell, was an English music hall singer born in Portsmouth. A pretty, waif-like presence, she was famous for singing "After the Ball is Over" among other songs. "After the Ball is Over", which was written by Charles K. Harris, helped to establish Tin Pan Alley in the 1890s. The sheet music sold over five million copies in the 1890s.
In 1935, Dormer had a character part in the film City of Beautiful Nonsense.
