What is exactly written in invitation letter ?
Aside from the usual congratulatory platitudes, the invitation letter advises that you get in touch with the relevant local council within 21 days of the date of the letter, stating the address of the council building where the ceremony will be held. The letter also states your full name, the name at birth, if different, your date of birth and the town and the country of birth.
Please note that the 21-day deadline is not enforced. The real deadline is 6 months after the date of the letter, but perhaps you should plan to do it asap once you have the letter.
The letter further says that even if your details, as stated on it, are incorrect, you should go ahead and attend the ceremony anyway and once you have received your certificate, you should contact the Home Office to have your details amended. This is probably because they need to retrieve the original document with the wrong details in order to issue a replacement and it is easier if the local council is kept out of the related back-and-forth.
Speaking of personal details, please note that Passport Office will not issue you with a British Passport under a name that is different from the one in your foreign passport(s). This is to prevent people creating double of multiple identities when acquiring other nationalities and it also applies to renewals, as they ask you to send to them all foreign passports that you have with your renewal application.
