Can you guess an approximate birth year, or do you know when and where he died?
Or which marriage do you know about, for area etc?
Have you got your Mother's birth certificate for her Mother's name?
Thanks

If you got the marriage certificate of Walter and Ada it would have his father's name on it. If wrong name for Father, not correct marriage certificate.
Presumably you guessed Ada because Islington is about the right area?

Marriages Sep 1925
Cole Walter E Smith Islington 1b 756
SMITH Ada J Cole Islington 1b 756
