REDUCE JUNK MAIL AFTER SOMEONE DIES
‘Junk mail’ is post addressed to the person who has died which comes to them with their name on from a company or charity that they have never had any contact with. The formal term is direct marketing mail. Reputable companies screen their mailing lists on a regular basis from lists such as the Mail Preference Service as they know how distressing it can be to go on receiving post addressed to someone who has died. You can significantly reduce direct mail by using the link provided below or by calling us on 0800 024 6121.
Please be aware that it may be a few weeks before you notice a reduction in the amount of unwanted post as mailings are often prepared some time in advance of being placed in the post.
You can apply to Royal Mail to have post to the person who died redirected to you or the person who is dealing with their estate. You can download the form but you must complete the form by hand and take it to a Post Office in person.
