Default on my credit score.

Can i remove a default from my credit file if it wasn't my fault.
What happened was when I moved into a new property there was only £50 outstanding on a water bill which I thought I paid in my old property.  
Months down the line the people who bought my house messaged me saying there was a letter that came to the old address for me. Then I discovered it was a overdue bill that needing paying. I was sure when I contacted Welsh water that I was moving I thought all payments was paid, because in the old property there was a water meter which I knew I forwarded the meter readings,  like I did for gas and electric.  
So is there anyway I can get this removed?
