I was told that my great-great grandfather surname was double-barrelled and was subsequently changed to the last surname. Can I (under UK Law) use the double-barrelled name when signing official documents?

As an example my families double-barrelled surname could have been "Baron Cohen" and has now been changed to "Cohen".
I have no intention of using the surname when signing official documents, etc but am just interested to see if I ever could use it.
