If you can find the family on the 1939 Register, you should see his date of birth. You could then obtain a birth certificate for him. As you know his father’s name it would help you to confirm the correct one. However, if he was in military service before the Register was taken, then he won’t be on it as service personnel are listed elsewhere. Hope that helps a little.
