Bereavement Advice Centre offers a free service to inform up to ten commercial organisations such as banks, building societies, utilities, mortgage and insurance companies about the recent death, saving you time.
The Death Notification Service is intended to start the bereavement process for the companies. The service provides details of the deceased, date of death and address and includes no other personal information or account details.
Once the companies receive the death notification, they may contact you to request further detailed information as part of their specific processes.
This service is most effective just after the death where there are many things to do and early support in notifying companies may help protect the deceased’s identity from fraud until the full bereavement process is addressed.
To register for the Death Notification Service please call 0330 045 0213 (we are available 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
