Hi cc,

Was his father's name on the birth cert?

If so, what is his father's name & what is his mother's name?

Who was he with in 1911?

Did his mother marry while he was still young as he may have taken on his step father's surname & carried it throughout his life?

He may have died under that surname?

Thanks Ladyhawk for links.

This kind of establishes he wasn't registered with both parents surnames which would be normal on SP if father had been present.
