Reggie Report 12 Feb 2013 09:58

Unless the putative father was sued for maintenance, you have virtually no chance of learning his identity

Mike * Report 12 Feb 2013 09:52

I think it's unlikely you'll ever know who his father was if no record exists.

Did his mother marry in Oxfordshire?

Marriages Jun 1920
Cato Edith M - Woodley -Abingdon 2c 995
Woodley James F - Cato - Abingdon 2c 995



You might find he names his stepfather as his father on his marriage cert

assuming this is him ....

Marriages Sep 1941
CATO Owen C - Flexon- Abingdon 2c 1141
Flexon Alice G - Cato- Abingdon 2c 1141

Unknown Report 12 Feb 2013 09:41

Trying to find if anyone knows who his father was-no name in birth certificate or baptism certificate, was told he could have been an aussie soldier but no proof of this, his mother was called Edith Cato born 1894 in kirklington, oxford
