Help & Advice First Steps, After a Funeral

Using Life Ledger to notify companies about a death

Pile of letters and bills on a table

There’s so much to think about when someone close to you has died. Life Ledger is a free service that aims to simplify the process of letting all sorts of companies know about a death.

Over 1,000 companies across the UK participate in the Life Ledger service, allowing you to begin the process of notifying and closing accounts from one central location.

You can use Life Ledger to send notifications to organisations such as:

  • Banks & Building Societies
  • Telephone and Mobile Services
  • Water Companies
  • Gas Suppliers
  • Electricity Suppliers
  • Credit Cards
  • Store & Loyalty Cards
  • House, Life, Car & Pet Insurance
  • Pension Providers
  • TV Licensing
  • Internet & Broadband Providers
  • Television & Satellite Providers
  • Streaming and Subscription Services
  • Social Media & Online Accounts

This is not the same as the Tell Us Once service, for government organisations, but it is a similar sort of service for private sector companies.

Simply create an account, tell them some information about your loved one and the businesses you wish to inform, and track the progress of your requests all from within Life Ledger.

The service is totally free for the bereaved, and lets you avoid having to have the same painful conversation over and over again. By reducing some of the admin involved in settling your loved one’s affairs, you have more time to focus on what is really important.
