When someone dies the mail simply does not stop, anymore than the call centres cease ringing. However, you can help the situation by informing key organisations about the death of a loved one, in order to prevent further unwanted contact, but, before you start, it can be helpful to have the following information to hand about the person who has died:
National Insurance number; NHS number; Date & place of birth; Date of marriage or civil partnership if appropriate, and their tax reference number.

Contact the Executor of the Will if this isn’t you. The person nominated will sort out the deceased’s affairs. However, where there is no Will, you need to decide who is charged with sorting the deceased’s affairs. That person should then contact the Probate Registry to apply for Letters of Administration.
