How to Register a Death with Charity Bank

You can notify Charity Bank of a death by visiting the branch where the deceased’s account is. You will need to make an appointment.

What Documentation will you need to notify Charity Bank of a Death? 

Charity Bank requires you to supply the following information:

  • A certified copy of the Death Certificate
  • The executor now handling the estate’s full details (including full name, date of birth, residential address). If this is being handled by a solicitor their details will be checked with the Law Society
  • Grant of Probate/Letter of Indemnity

What Happens Next?

Once you have notified Charity Bank of the death, they will carry out the next steps. Any sole accounts will be closed, joint accounts will be transferred to the surviving partner and funds will be paid to beneficiaries. If they require more information, they will contact you.
