JPs/Magistrates at your local Magistrates Court can sign them too.... some charge & some don't - its worth asking.

Your local County Court will do it for free and you dont need to make an appointment. Simply take your documents to the public counter during opening hours and ask to make an Oath.

Remember you need two lots of each document certified, one for your skills assesment and one for your visa application.

Not strictly true..... I found that if differs from area to area
My local court charges £5 per signature whereas one 6 miles away in the next town does it for free.......
We ended up doing a deal with our solicitor

I think the Stat Dec forms are designed for use inside Australia where a much larger range of people can sign it.

As far as I know for UK based applications the only official signatories specified are solicitor/notary or JP. Other signatures may be accepted but you run the risk of them being refused and having to get everything redone.
