Settld was formed in 2020, following the personal experience of our co-founders grieving the loss of their grandma/mother-in-law. The administrative process of notifying all her service providers (utilities, banks, insurance, phone, broadband, TV licence, subscription services etc) was complicated, stressful and time consuming.

If you don’t have either of these, a credit card, bank or building society statement issued in the last 3 months will also be accepted by most companies Proof of your identity: your passport, driving licence or residency card Death certificate: if this is not available, please upload the [...]
