It's possible that the christening record would show his fathers occupation - many do

You can post a lookup request on this board to see if anybody is visiting the records office and could look it up for you

Re: marriage cert entry.  We have all come across numerous instances where we know the father was deceased at the time the child married - but marriage cert does not say so

It all depends on how the question is asked by the registrar (eg)

What is your fathers name and occupation  or - what is your fathers name and occupation and is your father still alive
