The surrender Certificate also shows number and date of issuance of the British Passport. I would therefore conclude that one must provide copy of the British Passport in order to obtain surrender certificate. I may be wrong though.

£175x2 doesnt add up to £300. I suggest you carry exact change. Also note that:
Full signature in the box should be provided in case of major. Thumb impression (left hand thumb for male & right hand thumb for female) or signature should be provided in case of minor.

if it says Spouse's name then provide that. Why should you even be thinking of providing mother's name?
