I'm currently in the process of applying for my DS first passport and it says that due to myself and his father being born after December '82, I need to provide details about grandparents OR details of parents' claim to British Nationality. Can I use our passport numbers as Parent's claim to British nationality or am I going to have to get the grandparents details on DOB/ place of birth / date of marriage etc.

I just put down their name dob place of birth and if they were married to one another. I also only put down my own parents not her fathers and wrote other grandparents unknown due to no contact.

Even though both myself and dh are british passport holders and we live in the uk and my parents aren't originally from the uk snd husbands parents live overseas, we still had to out down all their details. It's names, dob and date of marriage i think. If you know these details, it's easier to enter them on the form than leave them out and stress that your application could be delayed.

Thanks for the help guys. Cupcake that was my biggest issue as I have no contact with my dad so wasn't sure how I'd go about getting his details, so it's reassuring to know I can just put that this is the case
