Tell Us Once
Tell Us Once is an optional free service that lets you report a death to most government organisations and council departments in one go.
When you register a death with us the registrar will ask if you want to use the Tell Us Once service. If you do they will give you a unique reference number to access the service online or over the phone.
This means you won't need to get in touch with individual organisations or send copies of death certificates to notify them of a death - Tell Us Once will do it all for you.
They can notify services such as the Department for Work and Pensions, HM Revenue and Customs and the Passport Office, as well as the following council services:
- Adult Services
- Blue Badges
- Children's Services
- Council Tax
- Council housing
- Concessionary travel
- Electoral Services
- Housing Benefit
- Library Services
- Sundry Debts
