Tell Us Once

When someone dies their death needs to be registered with the registrar. Once registered, other organisations and government departments need to be told.

Tell Us Once lets you report a death to a range of local and central government organisations in one go.

How it works

When you register a death the registrar adds the details of the deceased to the Tell Us Once national database.

Once the details have been added, you will be given a reference number and can complete the process online or by phone.

After you register the death, it is recommended that you use the service within the first few days and no later than 28 days.
