fathers name not on birth certificate


Active member

I have a birth certificate of my great grandfather harry dated 1881, his mothers name is on the document but he was given her surname and his father is not recorded anywhere.

If the father was deceased would they not put the name on the birth certificate at all?.to be honest im hoping that he didnt just do a runner during the pregnancy but its looking like a its a possibility.any info on this appreciated
