Since Bar Mitzwa primarily is something you "become", and not something you

age to have it registered.

Would synagogue accounts have had a record of a donation made e.g.
when a lad was called to the Torah?

If so, is there any likelihood the record has been retained?

The original poster may already have his birth certificate. If not,
http://www.freebmd.org.uk/ shows a birth in 1918 for a Marks Levy in
Whitechapel. If this is him, his mother's maiden name is shown on
the index - but to get more one needs to buy a copy of the birth
certificate - the site tells one how to do that - which will give his
parents' full names, and an address.
