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...

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.
