Name changes

In the UK anyone can change their name if they want to.

If you do change your name, many official bodies may request a ‘change of name deed’ to prove the change.

A ‘change of name deed’ will be given to you if you change your name at a register office in East Sussex.

We will also keep a copy of your deed, should you need a duplicate in the future.
