I've lost my share certificate. How can I get a new one?
If you lose your share certificate or it is stolen you should contact Equiniti immediately on 0871 384 2355.

How do I register the death of a shareholder?
It is necessary to complete a form which can be obtained from
Equiniti. The method of re-registering the holding will depend upon
the size of the estate.
Advice on the two different methods of re-registering can be found on the Equiniti Shareview website on http://www.shareview.co.uk/.
Shares held in joint names can be simply re-registered in the sole name of the other holder. To do so Equiniti will require:
- A photocopy of the death certificate.
- The share certificate, so that a replacement can be issued.
I've lost my dividend cheque/tax voucher. What should I do?
A replacement dividend cheque/tax voucher can be obtained from Equiniti.
There is no charge if the dividend cheque is for less than £30, but for larger payments there is an administration fee of £11.75 (including VAT). A replacement tax voucher also costs £11.75 (including VAT).
