This is a *comparatively* short search in any of the commercial index
databases for GRO indexes (1837online, bmdindexes etc). The indexes
include his age at death (as stated, not always exactly right).

>parents and place of birth
You would be unlucky there, unless the wife was the informant of the
death (in which case you get her initials or forename, M A Sullivan,
Mary Sullivan and widow (which would be the same if, say, his mother
gave the information) You do not get parents or place of birth or even
date of birth then in an English death certificate.
The age at death may lead you directly to his birth registration,
which WILL name his parents. The marriage certificate will name his
father, his wife and her father.
