Tell Us Once Service

 

What is Tell Us Once?

This service aims to reduce the number of local and central government departments that residents of the Borough of Bedford have to notify when they have had a bereavement.

 

Once you have registered a death with a Registrar you will be provided with a Tell us Once service number. This unique reference number is required to use the service:

 

  • By telephone - please call the Department for Work and Pensions.  The Registrar will give you the telephone number at the time of registering the death; or
  • Online - after you have registered the death, you can use the online service.  The website address is www.gov.uk/tell-us-once  You will have 28 days to log on to the website, after which your reference number will no longer be valid.

 

If you decide to use the service, you can choose which of the following you would like to notify:
