What Our Clients Say...

My 17 year old daughter wanted to change her name by Deed Poll to my maiden name and I was put off as had heard that it was a complicated process. I researched this on the internet and came across UKDP. I rang and a lovely young lady explained what my daughter needed to do and that I could do it over the phone for her as long as she signed the Deed Poll in front of a witness.

Everything arrived in the post the next day and the information pack was invaluable as all my daughter had to do was type out the template letters to various organisations.

I highly recommend UKDP to anyone wishing to change their name as they have made something I thought to be very complicated to the easiest thing in the world.
