The UK Deed Poll Office is a fast, simple & affordable online Deed Poll service that allows you to legally change you or your child's name in the UK. By following the steps set out below, you will have all the documents you need to ensure that you can change your name and notify all relevant organisations and bodies so that your new name can be used by you and fully recognised by others.
Changing your name is a legal matter; in order to use your new name in your passport, driving licence and on bank cards, you will most likely need a Deed Poll. There are some circumstances in which you may be able to change your name without needing a Deed Poll, such as upon marriage. However, even in those circumstances, it may be quicker and more convenient to use a Deed Poll. Although there are other ways to obtain a Deed Poll, these methods are likely to cost significantly more than using the UK Deed Poll Office’s easy online application. Let’s get started!
