Default UK Passport renewl with a twist

So long story short. I had to relinquish my UK passport about 10 years ago due to a DOD security clearance. The relinquished UK passport expired in 2015. Unfortunately the Facilities Security Officer (FSO) for our company passed away a few months ago. I am planning on leaving my current employer and asked them to return my passport. Problem is that the FSO told me a few years ago that he deposited my UK passport in his safe, but the company opened it and did not find my Passport.... At this stage I have to assume it has been lost. Can I apply for a new UK Passport with an older passport (I have 4-5 passports going back to when I was a nipper) or do I need to do something else? I also have my parents birth certificates and my birth certificate as well as several other supporting documents such as UK NI card. TIA for all thoughts....

Start here: https://www.gov.uk/overseas-passports

You’ll need to report your last passport as lost. You can do this online or by including Form LS01 with your renewal application.

I had a similar situation, The FSO took our UK passports and shredded them..
Once I left the company I reapplied for my UK passport stating that I had lost the original.
New passport arrived 2 weeks later
