  5. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 4 (Horace Slughorn), Slughorn says Cresswell was "in the year after" Lily Evans at Hogwarts School. Seeing that Lily's (born in 1960) first year was the 1971-1972 school year, Dirk's had to be the 1972-1973 school year and, thus, he was born in late 1960 or early 1961.
