Deed polls (change of name record)

What we have

We hold deed poll records that were registered with the Queensland Supreme Court up until 2004.

Please Note: Deed poll records can only be supplied to the person a record relates to. Queensland State Archives will be unable to assist you with records for another person unless you have received access permission from the relevant Supreme Court:

What we don’t we have

We don’t hold deed polls that were not lodged with the Queensland Supreme Court. Nor do we hold change-of-name records from 1 February 2004 onwards. To order copies of change-of-name records from 1 February 2004 onwards, contact the Registry of Births, Death and Marriages.

How to order a deed poll

Please use our online order form to order a deed poll. Select ‘General enquiries’ and fill in the form with the information required.

A certified copy of a deed poll is $45.00, per item, for up to 8 pages. Additional pages are charged at $1.75 per page.

To know where to order a deed poll from, you will need to know where the deed poll was originally lodged, and the approximate time period in which it was lodged.
