Thomas Hornby, I need help...

I have been trying to find my great grandmother for years now, but with no luck, my grandfather Thomas Hornby was born 11/03/1915 in St Helens, but there is no record of his birth whatsoever.
His father also Thomas Hornby was born in the September quater of 1887 in Prescot to Mary and James Hornby.
There is also no birth certificate for my grandfather Thomas born 1915, but I know he died in 1952 in Belfast. There are no parents names on his death certificate and his father Thomas 1887 was never married. The family never talk about my great grandmother and when my grandfather died in 1952 his wife destroyed all his official documents, so there is no record of anything.
Thomas 1915 lived with his father and his parents through his childhood, no mother was known, I can only assume he was registered at birth under his mothers name and then renamed when going to his father. I need help please from someone who might know something or somewhere to look. I,m getting sick of the sleepless nights with this going round in my head.
Thankyou in advance
