“ Excellent service, I would recommend Deed Poll Office ”

I found this site to be fantastic value compared to either a solicitor or other sites, the fact there is a discount for multiple name changes within the family is fantastic and saved a lot of money.

The service was also very easy and the documents came out via the post very quickly.

“ Very helpful and documents sent out very quickly ”

I used the deed poll service to change my surname. It was extremely easy to fill out the online form, and it checks several times on your name change in case you've entered it wrong!

I thought it would be a difficult long winded experience and it would take a long time to receive my certificates but I was wrong!

“ What an excellent service from Deed Poll Office ”

So far everything they have changed has gone through without any problems, including tax office, driving licence, doctors, bank etc, I was a little dubious at first as the price difference between this service and a solicitor is just too different to believe!

I would definitely recommend this service to any friends or family, it was just so simple, good value, stress free.

“ What a knowledge­able user-friendly office! ”

I had cause to contact the office by e‑mail and the response was immediate, together with a wealth of additional information which proved invaluable.

The staff were so helpful, and above all, knowledgeable.

Guilloché design on deed poll

Your deed poll will be printed on high-quality security paper, bearing our unique guilloché design.

We take great care to produce a beautiful, professionally-formatted document that you’ll have pleasure in keeping for the rest of your life.

Guilloché was first developed in the 16th century as a decorative engraving technique, and is now used as an anti-forgery protection on bank notes and certificates.
