Change of Name Deed

More and more people today are choosing to change their name.  There are many reasons for them doing this; they may not like their old name or may wish to emancipate themselves from an unhappy past, or it may be a gesture of family unity.

Cumbria Registration Service is now offering a Change of Name Deed service, which is an affordable option for clients.  Across the UK people can change their name at any time provided they do not intend to deceive or defraud.

A Change of 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 will receive your name deed at the end of your appointment.
If you would like further details of this service, please contact Cumbria Registration Service on 0300 303 2472 or by e mail at and we will be happy to help you.
