Register a death

Initially, you should register a death with the Registrar within five days.

The registrar will give you a reference number to use the government’s Tell Us Once service which reports the death to us and other government services all in one go.

Watch the Tell Us Once video produced by the Department of Works and Pensions below to find out how it works.
