Eric, is there a particular reason why you need to find his birth details? You are right in that there is no birth record in England/Wales on Freebmd (you will find no census after 1911).
If all else fails you could get the marriage cert to find out his father's details. But as he was a friend, have you no idea of his birthplace?

Perhaps he wasn't born in England or Wales...............

What was the MMN?

Has someone in the family asked you to do this research?

Have you tried looking for a birth under his mother's name, assuming you know it - not sure from what you say?

Someone on this site has a Maurice born in Scotland.

Kathleen M R Watson born Jun 1931 West Ham, 4a, 56 - Mother's maiden name Buff

She married Maurice Sandison Sep 1961, Brentwood , 4a, 1244

He died Jul 2004 Southend on Sea, 475/1, A13C
That record does show a declared DOB 08 June 1932

As you say there is no birth record. I have checked 10 years+/-

There are many reasons for this, He may have changed his name, been born overseas.
His last name may have been transcribed in the records incorrectly.
However the most likely is that his mother was not married at the time of his birth so he would have been registered under her maiden name.

What we need is his mothers maiden name.

:-D :-D :-D

Found him in the London Polls -
1957 42 Wellington Road, Hampton Hill, Twickenham - Reference Number: MR/PER/C/0985
1958 same address Reference Number: MR/PER/C/1010

As I pointed out above, a member on here has Maurice Sandison born in 1932 in Scotland.
A free search on Scotland's people for 1931 to 1933 reveals 3 hits for 'Maurice Sandison'.
So the most likely reason is not that he is illegitimate, but that he was born in Scotland.

Added:
Has Kathleen died, as she may not want her husband discussed like this?

Added:
She died in 1999.
However, any children, also?

The Scottish records aside, may be he was adopted?

Is there a particular reason why you are researching this person?

the reason I want this info on Maurice is that as a retired
invalid I spend most of my time building family trees for
friends or anyone who wants there tree started.
but the main reason is I grew up with Maurice living in
teddington Middlesex.and would like to find his birth place
and his father who wasn't about when I was growing up.
he had 2.older brothers but as I cant find his birth details
I cant match mums maiden name.

Have had a PM - Eric, you need to put replies on here, as long as they do not reveal personal info.
Basically Eric 'grew up with' Maurice and his family, so I am guessing a childhood friend? I think he knows names of mother and siblings from what he says.

Eric

You have been given info that he was possibly born in Scotland.............and, as such, may be in someone's GR tree.

Follow through on that....................get in touch.

Jan

I don't think Eric has any idea of the mother's name...........that's what he's looking for
