Notifying The British Museum of a bereavement

Settld’s free service allows you to notify The British Museum and all other companies when an account holder dies, using just one form. Using Settld means you no longer have to make multiple calls, respond to numerous emails, or complete separate webforms for each company. We take care of the stressful admin, giving you time to focus on what really matters.

What people are saying about Settld

“Using Settld stopped me from making and getting a lot of phone calls, from different companies, asking questions and asking me to send documents and supply other information like the death certificate, and then having to keep track of it all […] When I got an email saying there was an update from Settld, I simply logged into their portal to see the progress.

I would recommend Settld because it takes a lot of stress out of what is already a really stressful and anxious time. It means there is just one single point of contact, and that makes a big difference.”
