This application was fro two adult passport renewals.
We visited the post office and paid the extra to have the check and send service,
I was advised this would speed things up with the application.
My renewal was straight forward, no name changes in the past. My wife also applied at the exact same time for an adult renewal. She has had two or three previous names changes in the past, not sure why this is why hers has only been marked as received?
i was also informed that the reason the passports go to various locations, is in fact to do with what type of passport that is being applied for, 1st Passport, Child etc etc
