If you have them, then great, but if not, it's not a showstopper. It's the birth and marriage certificates which are important.

We noticed this a couple of years ago and it seemed excessive to request our passport details when our son applied in 2016. It had been over 10 years since his last passport expired so he was applying as if for the first time. (He submitted his expired passport as part of the application.) He provided a newly issued official birth certificate showing he was born in the UK in 1982, plus a copy of our marriage certificate and also details of our British passports. I feel sure that our passport details were superfluous to proof that he was entitled to a British passport. He also had to have someone, not a family member, certify that his photograph was of him, which is fair enough and to be expected.

It's more to do with preventing identity fraud than entitlement per se.

I think this is the key, the more pieces of documentation they have the better.
