Tell Us Once is a service that lets you report a death to most government organisations and council departments in one go.
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.
A registrar will explain the Tell Us Once service when you register the death. They will either:
- complete the Tell Us Once service with you
- give you a unique reference number so you can use the service yourself online or by phone
For the current timescales for using the service please see the Gov.uk website using the link below.
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:
- Council Tax
- Electoral Services
- Housing Benefit
- Council Tax support
