You can give as much info as you have about him but you dont need his permission or signature. If you have a British passport then provide those details where they ask for them

As above, it’s not an issue (my eldest DD has a similarly in/out of her life Dad!). One piece of advice I would give (especially if you have different surnames) is depending on where you are going (Europe was fine but I was detained for a couple of really horrible hours in security in Toronto once when eldest DD was 2) get a letter confirming sole guardianship. You can write this yourself basically saying you have full and sole guardianship of DD, get this counter signed at a solicitors (take along her birth certificate and your passport). Also detail the details of the trip, flight numbers and where you will be staying. It’s a pain but covers you - at least in your situation your DD is old enough to confirm you aren’t kidnapping her without her Dads consent!
