Option 1: Self-service
First, register the death with EQ
Our bereavement support guide takes you through the self-administration process for managing a deceased shareholder’s estate. This covers both the notification and registration stages and offers advice and guidance on Small Estate Declarations and Grant of Representation options.
Next, register the death with other organisations who are part of the Death Notification Service.
You can register a death with multiple organisations via a single online form using our Death Notification Service. This free service allows you to notify a number of banks and building societies of a person's death at the same time, and at a time that suits you.
You can find the names of the organisations you can notify here
