If you want to see if there was a deed poll change, go to
Select London Gazette
Go to archive
Enter name the person was
Select the option 1900-1999,
Select search and wait, every gazette where the name appears or the one
where the name change was notified will appear
It is a slow site but I have found it very useful especially as I do
Searching for Copelin, Pont, Attrell. Reeves
