Useful Help

Tell Us Once service

'Tell Us Once' is a service that lets you report a death to most government organisations in one go.

When you register a death the registrar will let you know if the service is available in your area, and will then give you the phone number.

You will also receive a unique reference number for the Tell Us Once service, which can be used online or by phone. Click here for more information.
