Tell Us Once

Tell Us Once is a service Wandsworth Council provides in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to help make it easier to inform the relevant organisations of a persons death.

We can help you to give the information to the DWP, and they can then pass on this information to a number of other government departments and local council services for you.

At registration

At the end of a death registration, the Registrar will issue the informant with a unique Tell Us Once Service Number.

A leaflet will be issued with the unique Tell Us Once service number explaining what information will be needed, and what happens to that information once you have contacted the Tell Us Once Service.

After registration

The informant can contact Tell Us Once online or by phone. This Enrichment part of the Tell Us Once service needs to be completed within 28 days of the death registration.
