Notifying Northumbrian Water of a bereavement

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.

Required documents and information

To notify water companies through Settld or directly, you are likely to need:

  • a scanned copy or clear photograph of the death certificate

  • the customer account number and meter readings for the property (if you can get them)

  • the name, email address, phone number and address of the person who should receive the final statement

  • information about whether the property is owned or rented, and the dates of the tenancy if rented (if available, a copy of the tenancy agreement would be useful too)

Please note, if the next of kin is staying at the property, you will need to provide their full name, contact information (phone and email) and date of birth.

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.”
