The Mortascreen data file currently contains the name and address details of over 10 million deceased individuals. Around 50,000 records are collected each month, accounting for approximately 95% of all deaths in the UK. This makes Mortascreen the largest file of its kind, with the most comprehensive collection of recent deaths.
Independent estimates suggest that around 170,000 mailings are delivered every day to people who are now dead. Not only does Mortascreen provide a means of preventing this unnecessary distress to bereaved families, it can also save your company considerable amounts of money and the possibility of costly, negative PR.
Any company sending out direct mail to consumers should be data cleansing using Mortascreen for cleansing cold lists or for ongoing database management. Deceased Suppression is now accepted as industry best practice and for good reason.
Each record has been allocated a source indicator ranging from level 10, probate data, to level 1, third party data. These indicators enable users to determine their own screening levels dependant on the input data.
