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...

I am very satisfied with my experience of Deed Poll, both the website and the customer service phone line.

I wanted to change my name to my married name, as I live in Italy and they have no way of allowing anyone to do such a thing here. I had to do this in a hurry, as I needed to renew my UK passport before it expired.

The website was easily navigable and I was able to find all information. I chose to call to clarify what I needed, just in case. The Customer service representative was well informed, and very patient with me, understanding exactly what the issue. I felt confident I could book my passport renewal, and would have all documents required. The Deedpoll certificate arrived promptly and was easy to fill out correctly. The cost of the service is reasonable and I would recommend it to anyone .
