Why Register a Bereavement?
When a loved one dies, the last thing family members want is a daily reminder of their grief because of unwanted direct mail.
The Australian Bereavement Register is here to relieve families of this anguish. And also lower the risk of identity fraud.
On average, a deceased person will continue to receive 68 items of direct mail during the first twelve months following their death. Our central register ‘cleans’ customer mailing lists and reduces unnecessary mail sent to the deceased.
The service is free to anyone who has lost a loved one and for organisations providing bereavement services wanting to ease the burden on their clients.
One simple registration process is all it takes. Register now and help us put a stop to unwanted direct mail being sent to the deceased.
What the Bereaved Say…
I am so happy to hear about this initiative. My sister’s husband died suddenly, at 45, three years ago and she got so much mail for him afterwards – despite informing most of the culprit organisations/ companies. It was a terrible experience. So congratulations and thank you.
I just read the article in Fundraising and Philanthropy Magazine about your data suppression database. Nice work. My father died last year and it was very distressing for all of us dealing with the continual mail-outs even from organisations that we’d notified of the death.

What the Funeral & Bereavement Service Providers Say…
At Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Service we recommend The Australian Bereavement Register service to all our families. The service assists families in a practical way at a time when they are struggling to deal with their grief as well as the myriad of administrative tasks required after a funeral.
We have been using The Australian Bereavement Register for over a year now and our client families have a sigh of relief when we tell then we can stop the direct mail addressed to their deceased loved one. An innovative idea from Conexum Data Management Services and invaluable to funeral directors. Highly recommended!
