Have you tried looking for info yourself?

Start with freebmd, to get accurate birth details

Can we assume you have been given his name as being your father?

Does anyone know the surname of his stepfather?

I hope that someone out there knows Alan who lived in woodgreen in 1959 with his mother and stepfather and delivered chocolates and sweets to Lyons'. He also liked bike scrambling. I think he would have possibly had either his mothers maiden name at birth or his fathers name as i'm having trouble tracing him.
My fingers are crossed as he is a missing link right at the start of my family tree.
Many thanks!
