Researching Catholic records

Has anyone researched Catholic baptisms successfully? If so how & where do you find them. I've not been successful at Warwick Records Office & they have suggested contacting the RC Cathedral (in Birmingham).
I was wondering if anyone had researched Catholic baptisms anywhere & if so where I could look for baptisms c1827.
Any help will be valuable.

Trying to get details for Birth Certificate

On my ‘Charles Henry Evans Bowhay’ (1901 – 1971) birth certificate it has his dads name ‘Charles Frederick Brooking Bowhay’.

When I search for the birth of Charles Frederick Brooking Bowhay (1867? could be wrong – 1951) it never comes up with the ‘Brooking’ part of his name.
