There is a much easier way round this one, which I have researched for a previous incident of this type. Take the cheque, your marriage cert and our passport to your bank. Explain what has happened and the rules do permit the bank to pay it into your account as long as you can satisfy them that you are the person to whom the cheque was issued.
