Registration of Death

It is a legal requirement that every death that occurs in Victoria has to be registered with the office of Births, Deaths & Marriages.

Once the death is registered, Births, Deaths & Marriages provide a formal death certificate, which is often needed in relation to any legal and estate issues that may need to be attended to.

During our initial meeting with you, we generally ask you to provide the various items of personal information that Births, Deaths & Marriages require to register the death.

To make this process easier at the time, you may wish to record this information in advance, and bring it along to your initial meeting with us. Download the Registration of Death form for Victoria or download the Registration of Death form for NSW.
