You can apply to get a weekly list of registered deaths in the UK if you’re part of an approved organisation.

The information can only be used for:

  • preventing offences
  • detecting offences
  • investigating offences
  • prosecution of offences

The annual fee is £57,000 which has to be paid quarterly in advance.

What’s on the lists

The lists include the following information:

  • name
  • alias name (if used and entered onto the registration)
  • date of birth
  • date of death
  • place of birth (if held)
  • usual address with postcode
  • sex
  • maiden name (if held)

How to apply

Currently only a very limited number of organisations are approved to use this service.

Check the list of approved organisations on the application form to see if you can apply.

Email your completed form to the Fraud and Data Unit, Her Majesty’s Passport Office (HMPO).

After you’ve applied

The Fraud and Data Unit will check if you’re eligible and might contact you for further information.

You’ll have to go through a security assessment which includes a visit to your premises - you must pay a non refundable fee of £5,000 for this.

The licence agreements will then be drawn up and agreed with you.
