How Littlewick Medical Centre can help

When someone has died we can help you tell the people who need to know. There are lots of things that need to be done, at a time when you probably least feel like doing them. One of these is contacting government departments and local council services that need to be told. HM government provides a service that enables you to tell us and these organisations will be contacted.

How the service can help you

When someone has died, their death needs to be registered with the registrar. Once that's done, several other organisations may have to be contacted and given the same information. We can help you to give the information to the Department for Work and Pensions and they can pass on this information to a number of other government departments and local council services for you.

How you can contact us to use the service

There are different ways you can use the service:

In person - If you would like to use the service please call within these hours to make an appointment with the Registrar in whose district the death occurred. The service will be offered by the Registrar immediately after registration.

If you would like more help let us know at this stage and we will be happy to talk to you about any extra help you may need.
