Stop Mail is a service that has been developed by the Bereavement Support Network to help families and friends find services following a loss. The Stop Mail service enters the detail into a secure data bank. Any company wishing to send direct mail details of their products and services can check their mailing list against the information held on The Bereavement Register®. If they find any matches they will remove the deceased’s details and stop sending them marketing communications, they are obliged to do this by law.

The information provided to Stop Mail is added to a mail suppression system which over 3000 UK organisations subscribe to, many of them household names. Typical users include financial institutions, mail order companies, national retailers and charities. In addition to offering this service you can also access the free to use probate helpline if you need any advice as to what probate is and whether you will need it. The Freephone service is operated by Trust Inheritance Ltd by calling 0808 168 9607 and any advice is free and confidential.
