By the way, you did not need any paperwork to change your name in England. As long as you were not changing your name for criminal purposes, you could call yourself anything you like. And who had a passport before the late 60s/early 70s?
My parents got their first passports in 1972, and they had to get a copy of their birth certificates to apply for them. Until then, they had neither birth certificates, passports or anything else confirming their identity, but they still managed to get married, register the births of their own children, get jobs and open bank accounts. Probably all with a rates bill!!!
