Name change for transgender people

Transgender people often wish to change their name when they change their gender. For example, John Davies may wish to become known as Joanne Davies. A person may also like to change their title in which case Mr John Davies could become Miss Joanne Davies.

Both of the above mentioned name changes can be carried out by Deed Poll in the usual way. Once the document has been received and executed, organisations and departments that hold records should be notified of the name change. They can then update their records to show your new name.

When changing your forename to match your new gender you may wish to change other parts of your name. Whether you require a surname change, a middle name changed, or simply a change of spelling to one of your current names, these can be incorporated into your Deed Poll document.  If you would like to change both your name and title this must be indicated when filling in the application form for a Deed Poll.

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.
