When someone passes away it is important to notify all the people who need to know.
In the first instance, every death should be registered at the Registrar’s Office within the district where the death has occurred. For more information about the Registrar, vist our registering a death page.
The ‘Tell us once’ facilty serves to advise governmental and local council services at the same time: www.gov.uk/tell-us-once.
You may also find it useful to visit www.the-bereavement-register.org.uk where you can register the death of a friend or relative by completing a straight forward online form. This will help reduce unwanted correspondence.
However, there is generally a lot of people you need to tell outside of the government and local authority. So, we have compiled a checklist to help you in this task.
