British Citizens Abroad

If you are a British citizen but do not currently reside in the United Kingdom, you can apply to change your name by Deed Poll. You can change any part of your name as many times as you wish to so long as you are not doing so for fraudulent purposes.

If you intend to change the name on your passport we advise that you first contact you local British Embassy to ensure that there are no special requirements that must be met before they will change your British Passport. In the majority of countries there are no problems but there are some that insist that the execution (signing) of your Deed Poll is witnessed by a solicitor.

When you receive your Deed Poll document you must sign it and have the signing witnessed. You can then start sending it off to various organisations to notify them of your name change. The Deed Poll will be accepted by all departments as proof of your change of name and they can update their records to show your new name.

What Our Clients Say...

I was very very pleased with my deed poll.

I was not sure weather to apply through this website or to do the traditional method of going to a solicitor. However I did not really have time to go and make an appointment with a solicitor, go and give them my instructions and then go back to them to go sign the deed.

The UK Deed poll was very quick. I completed the online application and made the payment and I was very surprised to receive my deed and legal copies the very next day.

It was fast and efficient. I would definitely recommend using UK Deed Poll to anyone looking for easy and stress free way of obtaining a deed poll.

They are also very helpful in that they send you a list of all the possible places you may need to send your deed poll to change your name and contains useful contact information.

Thank you UK Deed Poll.
