Some people do not like the name they were given as a child

Many people simply do not like their current names and wish to change them. Be it their forenames or surname, name change by Deed Poll is a simple process. Provided you are sixteen years of age or above, you can apply for a Deed Poll document and carry out your name change quickly and easily. If you are under sixteen years of age, you will need to have a person holding parental responsibility, apply for a Deed Poll for you on your behalf.  More information on this can be found on our page Age Restrictions.

By Deed Poll you can change any part of, or your entire name. You may simply wish to alter the spelling of your name, or could want an entirely different one. There are very few restrictions on what you can change your name to but further information can be found on our page Guidelines for choosing your new name.

What Our Clients Say...

Have to say that I was impressed with the service I received.

In my case, I contacted you because I wasn't sure if I needed to make a name change, and, given past experience with Govt agencies, I was dreading the call as I thought everything would be complicated!

The operator who took my call explained really clearly and succinctly what my options were, and how each option worked - even though the deed poll change was only one option! Having decided that I'd go through with the application, she then talked me through exactly what I needed to do, and what would happen at each stage. She was very reassuring, and I felt at ease to ask any questions I had, even though some were very simple and should have been obvious!!

The whole process was very quick - I was sceptical about the speed of service I'd been promised, but the forms actually arrived quicker than your operator had stated! I was also pleasantly surprised with the cost - I had expected the cost to be quite high, again given experience with fees for things such as passport change, drivers licence etc.

I'd be happy to recommend the service.
