Thank you. Before I order the birth certificate can you confirm the names of his parents,
to make sure I am ordering the correct certificate.

Not without my ordering the certificate too!
As you can see from the link I posted  the names of the parents are not included in this part of the indexes.  But the year is correct. You think he may have been born in Scotland. Seems worth the gamble to me.

I donít think you can look at that one with credits (itís too recent) you have to buy the actual cert, thatís why the blue button says buy certificate , rather than view with credits.

Youíll use them no problem Iím sure, but donít get carried away until  you are sure of his parents. It is easy to go along the wrong path.

Iím having a great time, connected the parents to John and his found his grandparents.
I making a family tree chart with details from an old family bible belonging to a friend.
I wasnít sure which area of the UK to look, just guessed it could be Scotland from the list of names.
The link you gave was the key.
Thanks for you help.
