Scottish Government guide on what to do after a death
This information applies to Scotland only
Your local authority may be part of a service called Tell Us Once. The service allows you to report the death of someone just once and a number of government departments are all then informed of the death. The UK government departments that are informed of the death include DVLA, the Passport Service, the Pension Service and HM Revenue and Customs. Check if your local authority provides this for you. You can find out more at www.gov.uk.
Bereavement support and advice
There's a useful list of bereavement support and advice services in Scotland on the mygov.scot website.
What to do after a death in Scotland is a booklet giving practical advice at a time of bereavement.
