Hello and thank you for your question.
I would suggest trying to get a new certificate put in your new passport before traveling. It should be relatively straight-forward for the transfer if you attend your nearest British entry clearance post in person. Further information on entitlement can be found here: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/righttoliveinuk/commonwealthcitizens/

That provides that: ROA19 Certificates of patrialityCertificates of entitlement replaced certificates of patriality with effect from 1 January 1983.Under section 39(8) of the British Nationality Act 1981, a certificate of patriality issued under the 1971 Act and in force before 1 January 1983 is regarded as a certificate or entitlement unless the holder has ceased to have the right of abode e.g. through renunciation, or independence legislation.
