How to Change Your Name by Deed Poll in the UK

UK Deed Poll Office provides a fast, guaranteed & affordable online Deed Poll service which you can use to change your name legally in the UK.  If you follow the easy 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; you can change your name simply by using a new name, however, in order to use your new name in your passport, driving license and on bank cards, you will most probably need a Deed Poll.

There are some circumstances when you can change your name without needing a Deed Poll, such as upon marriage.  However, even in those circumstances, it may be quicker, or more convenient to use a Deed Poll.  There are other ways for you to obtain a Deed Poll, but these will be likely to cost significantly more than using our online service.

JUST FOLLOW THIS SIMPLE DEED POLL PROCEDURE:

  1. ORDER SECURELY ONLINE

Simply click on the “Apply now” button below.  This will direct you to our secure payment and checkout page, where you will have to provide some details about yourself and payment for our service.
