About Us

For over 20 years we have worked hard collecting names and addresses of the deceased and supplying them to organisations across the UK in a secure manner.  This data has been used to suppress mailings and reduce the amount of mail items that are addressed to those who have died.  No reputable organisation wishes to cause distress to the recently bereaved and it is these organisations with whom we work. 


We collect the details of over 85% of all deceased individuals in the UK, making our service invaluable to individuals and organisations. 


Over time we have found that the information we collate is also invaluable to help combat identify fraud and prevent identity theft.  With this in mind, we have developed the Deceased Identity Protection Service shifting the focus from the Deceased Preference Service whose main priority is to stop unwanted mail to the deceased.


There are over a billion financial checks against our deceased data each year.


Identity theft happens when someone's personal information is used without their permission. The highest ever volume of identity fraud cases was recorded in 2022 – over 277,000 cases.*  Deceased identity fraud is one of the most common types of identity theft, this can happen when mail addressed to a deceased person is intercepted. The deceased details are then used to obtain loans, credit cards, goods or services, the impact of which can be devastating to family members and friends left behind. 


For added peace of mind, please ensure that documents containing personal details such as names and addresses are not left unattended in the property and shredded before disposal. 


We will continue to ensure that the information provided will also be used to remove the deceased’s details from company’s databases and stop unwanted mailings.
