Deaths

Tell Us Once

When you register a death, you will be asked if you'd like to use the Tell Us Once service.

This is a free service that allows us to tell central government and Council departments that the death has happened:

Central government:

  • Passport office
  • Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA)
  • War pensions scheme
  • Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
  • HM Revenue and Customs
  • Public sector pensions

Council departments:

  • Adult social care
  • Blue Badges
  • housing
  • Council Tax
  • Council Tax support
  • electoral services
  • library services

If you'd like to use the service, it would be helpful to bring documents about any benefits and service the deceased was receiving, including:

  • passport
  • driving licence
  • National Insurance number
  • Blue Badge

If you can't find the information or documents before the appointment, don't worry - you'll be able to use the service by telephone later. The registrar will you a unique reference number and the number to call.

We'll treat all information securely - the departments we share your information with will use it to update their records, but only as the law allows.
