Depends on what sort of application it is. My husbands renewal, only the old passport was needed. For my sons first child passport, birth certificate was needed and someone needed to confirm his identity. When I had to change my name on my passport, my marriage certificate was needed.
We travel on the 1st November and are currently waiting for my husbands renewal to come back. This is the stage we are currently at…

From looking at everyone’s timelines, we are hoping it will be back within the next week. He has called and asked if the travel date can be put onto the notes, but the woman on the phone said that she can’t do that and wouldn’t make a difference 🤦🏼♀️ We didn’t realise that the wait time is up to 10 weeks as when we googled passport renewal, it just took us straight to the renewal page and didn’t state any wait times 🤦🏼♀️
His boss’ wives passport came back the day they were travelling (Friday 15th October) but luckily they were travelling a bit later on in the day where as we are travelling at 6am on the 1st 😬 I feel like this is cutting it a bit fine… Fingers crossed it’s back on time 🤞🏼
