You can tell us someone has died using our online form.
You can let us know about the death if you are:
- a member of the family
- the executor
- a solicitor
- a friend who is dealing with the deceased's estate
You will need to supply an original copy of the death certificate so we can update our records. We will make a copy of the death certificate and return the original to you.
Once you have told us about the death we will update our records for:
- Council Tax
- housing and garages
- voting and elections
- bins and recycling
You can also let us know that someone has died by using the Tell Us Once Service on GOV.UK
Tell Us Once is a service that lets you report a death to most government organisations in one go.
A registrar will explain the Tell Us Once service when you register the death.
