Once you’ve contacted a registry office, please let us know as soon as possible.
There are several ways to notify us.
You can tell us that someone has passed away by completing this form.
We’re also a member of the Death Notification Service – this means you can tell a number of banks and building societies at the same time about a person’s death, and it’s free to use.
You can view the financial institutions that are involved in this service.
You can call us on 0800 068 2238. Our bereavement partner Co-op Legal Services1 will take a note of your information and discuss obtaining probate if required.
If you prefer to speak with someone in person, please visit one of our branches. We’re always ready to listen and help where we can. We recommend booking an appointment prior to your visit – you can do this by contacting our Telephone Banking team on 03457 345 345.
If you prefer to write to us, please send all correspondence to:
Barclays Bereavement Team
If you’ve already notified us and are sending supporting documents, please make sure you include the unique case number that starts with BRV.
Please note that we will accept notifications from all 3rd parties (such as the Department of Work and Pensions).
If you’re arranging the funeral you may wish to find a funeral director. We can assist with payment for a funeral as long as there are sufficient funds in the estate.
Please let us know if we can help when you notify us.
There are also some government benefits available to help cover the cost of the funeral – find out if you’re eligible.
