Change of name deed

​​​​​​We offer a “change of name deed” service for any adult over the age of 18 and, in certain circumstances, to children under the age of 16.

A name deed is an acceptable document to prove that a person has changed their name. It should be used in conjunction with a birth certificate and other supporting documents. The Passport Agency and other government departments are happy to accept a name deed as documentary evidence to change a name on a passport or other formal documents.

A change of name deed will be prepared and witnessed by a trained Registration Officer and you'll receive your name deed at the end of your appointment.

We keep a permanent record of your change of name deed and you'll be able to apply for replacement copies if you lose the original copy.

We provide a fast, efficient and personal service for completing your name deed at a very competitive price.
