This looks like George's birth registration from the GRO but with his first names the other way round.

BREWER, MAFEKING  GEORGE     IRELAND 
GRO Reference: 1900  J Quarter in CARDIFF  Volume 11A  Page 383

This might be his parents marriage

Marriages Mar 1883   
BREWER    Frederick        Droitwich    6c   419    
IRELAND    Martha        Droitwich    6c   419

I'll check the 1901 census.

Are you sure his mother was Anna Dobbs?

Just realised you meant Anna was George's wife.

He is on the 1901 census with parents Frederick and Martha and five older siblings.

In September 1958 Clifford Brinley Brewer of Colum Place is in the newspapers.  He was found not guilty.
