Fathers & Wedding Licence

So I've been reading that when giving notice they ask for your father's info. I know his name but that's it. He was never around when I was a kid & he's not on my birth certificate. Do I still need to tell them his name? Or do I simply say I don't know who he is?

    Ask the registra. They will know best and I’m sure you’re not the first.

    I know my father's details but don't speak to him. I asked the registrar if I could leave his details off and they were fine with that. I asked when we went to give noticeo. On our marriage certificate there's just a line through where his details should be.
