Thank you jax but my dad was born in Middlesbrough

This is the best I can find, but doesn't work for an August birthday. Might help if you had his father's name from the marriage cert. I know it seems a bit far from what you are asking, but you need to pin his birth down if possible.

You could always purchase his death cert to see who registered it...It may have been a family member?

http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/

the cert will cost £9.25

As you were born in Greenwich and he also died there it looks like he may have remarried

There is a Carter/Arnold birth in 1961 Florence would have been 46 but not impossible
