A growing number of parents are changing their ‘Transgender’ children’s names legally by Deed Poll, according to reports.
As more children claim to be transgender, the number of cases where names are legally changed has soared.
At least one under-16 is having his title changed from “Master” to “Miss” or vice versa every single say the UK Deed Poll Service discovered, according to the Sunday Times. Parents must give consent to a change in title and name for their children.
Senior Deed Poll officer Louise Bowers stated: “We used to issue a couple of these deed polls every couple of months — but now it’s seven to 10 a week.” “The majority are teenagers — 14 or 15 — but they go down to the age of 10.”
