The Taxpayer is already paying for the collection of a register of deaths. Issuing that to marketing companies so they have to clean mailing lists against it would be easy and could even be done at a profit to the taxpayer.

Why is this idea important?

Receiving post for someone who has died is more than just irritating. Several hundred thousand people die in this country every year, even if this only reduced mail to their families by half a dozen per death it would avoid millions of incidents of distress.

It would also avert hundreds of tons of landfill and save money for both taxpayer and I suspect businesses.
