Afraid you really need the marriage cert to determine the couple's ages and fathers.

Moran is a very Irish name

I can't see a marriage in 1962 for these two people. Are you sure they actually married?

You could check with the Catholic churches in Bury as they should still have the records or with Lancashire County Record Office but you would need to know the actual church.

EDIT - sorry I read the date as 1962 instead of 1862.
