Please be aware that due to the current Covid-19 situation, the Registrar will issue you with a unique reference number for Tell us Once following the registration of the death. This will enable you to use the 'Tell Us Once' service either on line or via the telephone service.
In some circumstances the Tell Us Once service can be used following the issue of a Coroner's interim certificate.
Our Tell Us Once service allows you to share information about the death with other government and local council services following the completion of the registration.
This can be done either online or over the phone.
When someone has died, their death must be registered with the registrar. Once completed several other organisations may have to be contacted and given the same information. We can help by giving the information to the Department for Work and Pensions and they can pass on this information to a number of other government departments and local council services on your behalf.
If you wish to use this service it may be useful to have available the deceased’s:
- National Insurance number
- Driving licence
- Blue badge
- Vehicle registration document.
