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.

No matter what changes you decide to make to your name, a Deed Poll will allow you to start getting your records updated immediately.

What Our Clients Say...

The change over was smooth-ish! The various organisations I had to inform was time consuming but got there in the end. There were a few problems but it came down to basic communication or lack of it really. I still get the odd organisation referring to my old name, but once I've jogged their memory and they check their records we get back on track again.

In general though, I was very happy to use UK DEED POLL and would recommend this organisation to any one wishing to change their name. My mother is contemplating using you to revert back to her maiden name, so watch this space.

Once again, thank you.
