Birth, Death and Marriages in Queensland manage death certificates.


Applying for a death certificate

Most of the time you will not need to apply for a death certificate, the funeral director will register the death and apply for a standard death certificate on your behalf when you organise the funeral.

Fill in the death certificate application form if you need:

  • additional death certificates
  • a replacement death certificate.

A standard death certificate shows the full details of the death record and is a recognised identity document that informs government agencies and financial institutions that a person has passed away.

If the death took place in another Australian state, contact the registry in that state or territory to get the certificate.


How to apply

It will take you less than 10 minutes to fill in this application form.

  1. Answer the questions.
  2. Choose how you would like to pay the fee.
  3. Review your details.
  4. Read the email we send you to find out how to finalise your application.
  5. Have your proof of ID documents certified by a Justice of the Peace or another authorised person.
  6. Submit your proof of ID by post or in person.
