Legal advice needed

I know this isn’t your average post so please bare with me..
My partners mum abandoned him when he was a baby so he’s grandmother took over he’s care. He’s mum never had nothing to do with him but was holding things against his grandmother. When he’s grandmother tried to adopt him officially to get he’s biological mother out of his life she was told that he would be taken off her (for up to 4 years) until a decision was made on if she was fit to look after him etc and they advised her to keep things how they were to avoid my partner anymore upset. My partner is now 30 years old and is still troubled by he’s biological mother regularly, she lives 5 minutes from him and she is always harassing him for one thing or another. My partners grandmother still has a relationship with her so that doesn’t help. She has now said she wants nothing more to do with him and is going to see a solicitor about taking her name of his birth certificate. This has upset my partner and he now wants to go ahead and make sure she legally has nothing to do with him and has to leave him alone. I don’t think he can take her name of the birth certificate? what could he do in this situation to ensure he doesn’t have to deal with her anymore and it is made clear she has no rights as his “parent” (although he is 30 is parental rights still valid?)
Thank you in advance

Could he apply for a restraining order against her, block her on the phone and just refuse to see her.

You can’t take a name off a birth certificate. And parental rights at 30?! He’s a grown man!
Just move further away and reduce contact.

She can't do that. It's a legal record.
Maybe, if she proves by DNA test that she wasn't the mother it could be corrected.
But she's clearly an idiot. Let her waste her time and money

A child has no legal obligation to their parent in the UK. None.
He could decide never to see her again and there's nothing she can do about it. No paperwork required.
Her parental rights are meaningless now.
Equally, she has no responsibility towards him either.
Either way, neither of them can change his birth certificate.
