    If it is recent i.e. since 1920 with no death, please don't post the details here. The million to one shot is exactly why we have the Ts and Cs about not posting living details.

    It is a legal requirement to do - not optional (although many parents don't realise).
    For such a re-registration you can't change the first names, with the only exception being where the father's surname was given as a forename, but can change the surname (but only within certain rules).

    A completely different process allows a given first name to be changed within 12 months of registration (in some circumstances), that is done by adding it to the original registration, so that isn't a new entry, but it may create a separate index entry under the new name (but will have the same reference).
    I am a professional researcher, and ex- deputy registrar, based in Buckinghamshire - please contact me for any help/advice or research via PM or my website www.chalfontresearch.co.uk
