Do you have any dates? If you look on FreeBMD you will see there are no Joseph George Midgleys.

Hi Tony,

Please can you say when they were born?

Is this your dad?

Births Dec 1936 (>99%)
Midgley George J Oldfield Liverpool N. 8b 785

Oldfield is his mother's maiden name.

So your dad was born soon after George and Eileen married so he is a Midgley. Ronald and Marine (Josephine) were born before, so they were born as Oldfields.
