These documents are required so that we can manage the account and pass any details onto our probate solicitors if appropriate. The documents should be sent to us at the following address:

Once we have received the required documents then we will make arrangements to close the account.It is possible that letters or statements for the deceased customer may continue to be received while the closure of the account is being arranged. We apologise in advance for any mail that is received.

Use of Supplementary or additional cards
