Report a Death

You can use this form to notify the Council that someone has passed away.

The information in this form will be used by the Council Tax Department and will also be passed to our Electoral Registration Department and the Benefits Team if relevant.

If the deceased person held a Gold Card (Bus Pass) or was on the Assisted Bin Collection list, the form will also be passed to the Bus Pass and Refuse teams.  

There is also a government service available called "Tell Us Once".  If you use that method to register a death, many other organisations will also receive the information.  Please visit Tell Us Once for further information.
