Default Confirming identity for passport

I am living overseas trying to get my family's passports renewed. I have come to a slight obstacle, the person needed for identity verification apparently now needs to live in the UK. How does this work if I am overseas?
https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/...rming-identityTo confirm someone’s identity online, you need to:
  • be 18 or older
  • and live in the UK
  • and have a current UK passport
  • and work in or be retired from a recognised profession

Thanks, this has been answered at this post

It was really easy.
You apply online and then i had my old friend from England who lives there authentic Tecate who my kids are. You just provide their email on the form and they will send them a link to verify your identity. They just need to know the names, DOB and address of the kids and myself.

Supporting evidence was both sets of grandparents birth certificates and a few other easy items.

It took 2 months and was so simple.

We have the kids first UK passports in hand now.
