Tell Us Once – Births and Deaths 

The registration service in Moray offer a service called ‘Tell Us Once’.

When someone has been born or has died, their birth or death needs to be registered with the Registrar. Several other organisations may also have to be contacted. We offer a service which will make things easier and can help tell the people who need to know.

This service means that you can just 'tell us once' and we will do the rest on your behalf.
