    Middle name to surname? Anyway you need a Deed Poll, legal document with change of name, with that anything like certificates will be fine in your old name although you will have to probably change things like bank accounts, passports and driving license....You will have to send your deed poll off for that.

    I pay it to my neighbour as he says he'll sort it for me on his computer. come to think of it I haven't received a proper confirmation. In total I handed over £31,000 and I have to pay £1400 every 6months to renew it.

    It cost money to change your GCSE A-level certificates etc. Generally you just keep the deed poll for situations like where you need to show your ceritificates and just show your name once matched those on the certificate. Don't forget to get a new passport in your new name.

    I did mine around 2 months ago and it was relatively stress free.
