Welcome to Rootschat, Lisa.  This would perhaps have been better posted on the Scotland board, as that is where you need to search.  Scottish records can be found on www.scotlandspeople.co.uk which is a pay-to-view site. However once you buy credits you are able to view and download the actual records from there.  A search shows that there is a marriage in 1901 for Ernest Alland, and also a 1901 census entry for Earnest Alland.
A point to bear in mind for future postings is that typing all in capitals is considered to be "shouting", and so should be avoided. :)
Good luck with your search.

Sorry, I misunderstood what you were looking for.
Have you tried Familysearch.org? The site has a lot of information on Swedish research in the Wiki section.

Did he marry/die in Scotland?
If so, you need all the information found on those certificates - Scottish bmds generally have more on them then the English/Welsh.  Marriage should show both his parents' names. If he passed away 1966 or later ,his death certificate should have his date of birth on it (http://scotlandspeople.gov.uk/content/help/index.aspx?r=554&628 shows what is found on different types of certificates in different years)

At least an approximate date of birth would help a lot. Check how his birth was listed in 1901 and 1911 censuses (from Scotlandspeople it seems the surname at least is found in the 1911), in case a more exact place of birth was given.

The more information you can get out of the Scottish records, the easier it will be able to find him.
