Who to Notify

When someone passes away it is important to notify all the people who need to know.

Firstly, every death should be registered at the Registrar’s Office within the district where the death has occurred. The ‘Tell us once’ facility serves to advise governmental and local council services at the same time.

You may also find it useful to visit The Bereavement Register 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 are generally a lot of people you need to tell outside of the government and local authority. So, we recommend www.lifeledger.com
