Phoning the 'Tell us Once' service

This service allows you to report your loved one’s death to most government organisations in one go. When you register the death, the registrar will let you know if the service is available in your area, give you the telephone number and online address and give you a unique reference number to use the Tell Us Once Service online or by phone.

The service should notify local and central government services about the death on your behalf including:

  • HMRC
  • DWP
  • Passport Office
  • The local council
  • DVLA
