Australian Death Registration Forms

The Registry uses the details from the death registration record to produce a NSW Death Certificate. Funeral directors are usually responsible for registering the death within seven days of the burial or cremation. The Notice should serve as a prompt first advice of death, which is later matched with the Death Registration Statement (from the funeral director) and the Doctor's Certificate of Cause of Death in a verification process. If the matching paperwork is not received, the Notice also serves to alert BDM that a death has occurred but the body has not been properly disposed of, or the funeral director has not registered the death.
