Are you sure he was born in Lancashire in the 1960's as I can't find his birth record?
There is a Patrick D Anderton born in Preston, Lancashire in 1932 and a Patrick RM Anderton born in Dartford in 1965. Could it be one of those?

There is a marriage for a Patrick D Anderton in 1974 in Preston, and a Patrick D Anderton showing on in Preston. But this could not be your man if born in the 1960's.
There are births in Lancashire in the 1960's for Andertons with the middle initial P.
Are you absolutely sure of the spelling and birthplace, and could he have another name?

You appear to have put his birth year as 1964 in your tree - is this just a guess?
There is Anthony P and William P born in Lancashire in 1964.
