How do I change my name on my account(s)?
In most cases, all we’ll require is a certified copy of documentation confirming your new name, such as a marriage/civil partnership certificate or Deed Poll. In the unlikely event that we require any further documentation, we’ll contact you directly.
You can bring the documents into branch, or post the certified copies to:

Remember to include a signed letter with your request, your name, address, account number and your certified document copies.
If you have any questions about this process, give us a call.
