Best way to no­tify banks of a death?

The Daily Telegraph - Your Money - - FRONT PAGE -

I be­lieve there is a way that I, as an ex­ecu­tor, can no­tify var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions in one go that some­one has died? Can you tell me what it is? DD, WEST MID­LANDS

Many coun­cils op­er­ate a free “tell us once” ser­vice as a one-stop shop to no­tify en­ti­ties such as HM Rev­enue & Cus­toms, the Depart­ment for Work & Pen­sions and oth­ers of a

death. This is of­ten drawn to some­one’s at­ten­tion when they reg­is­ter a death.

Co-op Le­gal Ser­vices owns the Be­reave­ment Advice Cen­tre ( be­reave­men­tad­vice.org). You can call on 0330 045 0213. It will no­tify up to 10 fi­nan­cial com­pa­nies.

A sim­i­lar free ser­vice is fi­nanced by UK Fi­nance, the banking trade body, and run by Equiniti. See death­no­ti­fi­ca­tion­ser­vice. co.uk or tele­phone 0333 2076574.
