You'll need to pay a search fee in that case and may not be guaranteed a single result.
Anyone* born between 1864-1915 should be on the GRO's indexes here
. The census will give you an age - don't assume its entirely accurate - and a birth county - also not guaranteed to be accurate! With the reference numbers from there, you can order a certificate without a search fee.
