After The Burial
Registration of Death
Under the relevant Births, Deaths Marriages Registration Act in each State, you are required to register the death of the deceased with the relevant Office of the Registry General, Births Deaths and Marriages. The registration of the death is generally required to be completed within seven days of the funeral.
What documentation do I need?
The following documentation needs to be presented to the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
- Medical Certificate of Cause of Death, or Medical Certificate of Cause of Stillborn or Neonatal Death or Coroner’s Certificate
- Death Certificate Application (if you require a Certified Death Certificate)
- In the case of a Stillborn, a Birth Information Paper must also be lodged
How long does it take for the death to be registered?
Registering a death takes approximately two weeks. Once registered the applicant may lodge a Death Certificate Application form with the relevant Registry for a Certificate of Death Registration (commonly known as a Certified Death Certificate).
Death Certificates usually take from 3-7 days to be issued and there is a fee charged for the document by the Registrar.
