on the how to fill your passport application form booklet,
On page 13,
section 4, parents details for all first-time customers.
if your parents were born after 31 Dec 1982, or were born outside the UK. write the full name, town, country,
date of birth and date of marriage of the grandparents i9n section 8 of the application form.
I didn't fill grandparents details or write a cover letter because i didn't know i have to. there is no metion grandparents in the form. would it be any problems?

I will also make a courtesy call to IPS to confirm what I am going to put down on the covering letter to make things official. I am preparing my form to send out as soon as I get my hands on that coveted naturalization certificate. My ceremony is on Sep 10 2009.

I am a British citizen by birth in the UK before 1983 and even had a British passport, which I lost.
When I applied for my first British passport in Madrid, I had to fill in the C1 application form for those British citizens that apply from an embassy. Section 2 reads "were you born in the UK after 31 December 1982, or outside the UK or a qualifying territory." I marked no, skipped my parent's details and get along with the application.
Now in the UK I want to replace this passport that I lost. The application forms look different and they omit the above question, so now I have to fill in my parents' details and up to my grandparents if my parents aren't British as per section 3 of this form. I have not known three of my grandparents and my mother did not see her grandfather alive...
I called IPS very confused and they told me I still had to add my grandparent's details on an extra sheet, but explain in section 8 my entitlement to the British nationality referring them to this -what they actually should know by heart. If I had not lost my British passport, I would not have needed to enter details of my ancestry. I even remember my British passport number. Unfortunately, that doesn't suffice them... I will keep my next British passport in a safe...

I am in the same predicament so I took this forum advise and called IPS on Telephone: 0300 222 0000. The agent informed that naturalized new citizens do not need to include grandparents information. Non British Parents / British Parents information should suffice.
Thank You for the heads up guys.
