Since, I have to move next week so kindly consider my request as early as you can. You can contact me any time for more details if required. Waiting for your response,

Letter to Close Bank Account Due To Death
Respected Bank Manager,
It is my painful duty to inform you that my uncle Mr. Yaseen has passed away due to an unfortunate cardiac arrest last week. We have just come to know that he had a bank account in your branch, so now as per legal policy I request you to close his bank account with immediate effect, and cease all the previously instructed transactions from his account. The death certificate will be provided to you in few hours.
