In that case your children are indeed entitled to British Citizenship - and all you need to do is apply for a Passport for them
Please ask if you need further details

Thankyou Clare.

I have a logistical problem applying for a passport for my son here in Angola as already have a family in the UK.

I therefore can not have correspondence between the passport office and my UK home address.

I need absolute confidentiality and I need someone in UK to handle all correspondence associated with the passport application and future renewals.

I can send you any required documents by DHL and I have a mailing address in Luanda for receiving documents.

You may also have to arrange translation of the local birth certificate.

Are you able to consider this service. If so we should talk later by phone to discuss details.
