Register a death

The Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 1998 requires a person to notify the details of a death to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Registration is usually done by the funeral director, following the funeral and needs to be done within 14 days from the date of death.

If the death has already been registered you can apply for a copy of the death certificate
