Pretty much anyone can do it as long as they are not related to you

I got my boss to sign, when the certificates came through it did give instructions of who could sign and how the process worked. Answers to FAQ can be found on the internet; one site said: If you are British and live in the United Kingdom, your witness can be anyone so long as they are at least 18 years of age; know you and are independent of you i.e. not a relative or partner or someone living at the same address. A suitable witness would be, for example, a friend, neighbour or work colleague. If you are British and living overseas, you will need to have the signing of your Deed Poll witnessed by a lawyer or a notary public. If you are not British and live in the United Kingdom, you should check with your Embassy (the passport section in consular services) to ask if your Deed Poll needs to be witnessed by either a UK solicitor or a notary public. Please note, if your Deed Poll needs to be legalised with an Apostille, it will need to be witnessed by a UK solicitor or a notary public. See the answer to Q31 below for further information about legalising your Deed Poll. Hope this helps :)

It has to be someone who knows you, but does not live with you (at same address) or a relation.
