Tell us once is a service which helps people when they are registering a birth or death.
The service aims to reduce the amount of calls that a relative has to make to government agencies and council departments when registering a birth or death.
When using the service, which is offered at any death or birth registration appointment, people will simply tell the registrar the details once and we in turn will, on the informant’s behalf, notify government organisations and council departments that need to know.
The service greatly reduces the amount of time that people need to spend contacting organisations about a birth or death, so eases added stresses and pressures.
When people make an appointment to register a birth or death they will be asked by Dudley Registration Service staff if they wish to use the Tell us once service. If they do they will be reminded of all the details that they need to bring along to the appointment.
More information on the process and its benefits can be found at Gov.UK Tell Us Once.
