Tell us once

Tell Us Once is an optional and free service which allows you to report a death to many council and government organisations all at once, to save you time.


When you attend to register the death, the registrar can provide you with a unique reference number to use when you contact the Tell Us Once service.

If you can't contact the Tell Us Once service yourself, you could ask a family member, friend or your funeral director to assist you.

The registrar will also provide you with the contact details for the Tell Us Once service.
