Hi, I'm recently separated and would like to return to my maiden name, but double barrelled with my married name to keep my connection with DC.

Has anyone used this website? www.freedeedpoll.org.uk/

It produces a free Deed Poll certificate.

Any feedback / suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks

Yes I did that. No issues at all - accepted by everyone.

Yup, did the same. Technically it's not necessary, you can call yourself whatever you want, but having the bit of paper is extremely useful for banks etc.

I printed off a free one, and that was what I used when I went to the passport office. Everywhere has accepted it, except EE so my mobile phone contract is in my old name??.annoying!
