Trying to locate possible parents

Use freebmd to find birth…….then look for marriages using the relevant surnames

I gave you the link to freebmd on your HUNTER thread, which is obviously connected

it is VERY easy to use.

OR…….buy a copy of the birth cert

No need for anyone to look for anything for you regarding this.

Your other thread had plenty of advice on where to look for this sort of information.

Use freebmd as suggested and buy the birth certificate from the GRO.

Your info is inaccurate….he died in 1996, not 1966 as per your title
