If the father's name isn't on the birth certificate then you don't really stand much chance of finding out who it was unless there is somebody, possibly within the family, who knew and is willing to talk.

Sometimes you get a clue on the baptism but not in this case:

Warwickshire, England, Baptisms, 1813-1910
Name: John Peace
Parish: Great Alne - address Burford Lane.
Baptism Date: 18 Jun 1891
Father's Name:
Mother's Name: Emma Peace (or Pace)

It's noted that the baptism was private and underneath is written "received into the church 15 Nov 1891".
