given the era, it is possible dropout could be from Haden or Cyclo

lug pattern might be a clue...

member @dnc1 shall be able to shed some valuable illumination here...

I had a quick look through some Dawes catalogues on the V-CC library site.
Those steeper inclined dropouts may be a little earlier than you are guessing.
Unfortunately they are only illustrations and not photos in the images I've looked at but lug patterns/shapes are visible.
As @juvela says above, images of the lugwork may be helpful.
if you can get a good photo of the seat cluster area from the same angle as your previous photos above, and also the head tube area, I'll see if I can help.

Here are a couple of examples similar to yours;
I can't say they are exactly the same, as I mentioned before, the images are either illustrations, or the photos aren't clear enough.
This one is from the 1931 catalogue.....
1495094


...and this one from 1938.....
1495098


... sorry I can't get a definite match.

From these examples I think you have a date range from 1931 onwards at least.
It seems the sports models that were singlespeed or had hub gears featured these steep dropouts; the ones on early derailleur models had a much more conventional (shallower) dropout angle.

It looks like a nice frame to build up a typical 1930's/40's clubman's style bike from.
Enjoy it, and above all, ride it!

^^^ what he said ^^^

Strange that the BB has chamfered keyhole lugs and the head and seat have a different style.
That BB is the same that's on my 38' Armstrong. The seat stays at the seat bolt is exactly the same also except the style of the lug opening is different.
