This form is an integral part of the death registration process, which attributes to the issue of the registered death certificate by the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages.
Following the burial or cremation our staff will lodge this alongside other relevant documents and within 21 days the registered death certificate will be issued.
The doctor issues a certificate indicating place and cause of death and this is known as the Medical Cause of Death Certificate.
This is then lodged with the Registry office alongside other documents, such as the Death information form and the registry cross checks all the documents to ultimately produce the Registered Death Certificate. This is the official legal document – one may say it’s like a birth certificate – only in reverse.
