When a person dies in Tasmania the death must be registered. This is a requirement of the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 1999.
The information collected on a Death Registration Statement will appear on the official death certificate. We recommend emphasising to the deceased's next of kin the importance of supplying correct registration details. Please ensure that the death registration details are accurate before submitting them, as amendment fees apply to correct certificates once the death record has been finalised.
The Funeral Directors Online service is for use by Funeral Directors who are registered as a prescribed business with the Local Government Division, Department of Premier and Cabinet. It allows funeral directors to lodge a death registration online. All details are transferred directly to Births, Deaths and Marriages without the need to complete and lodge a hard copy form.
Funeral Directors can also opt to order and pay for a death certificate (for the deceased's next of kin) at the time of registering a death.
If you are a registered user please login to Funeral Directors Online.
If you would like to register for this service, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need Acrobat Reader on your computer to open the forms.
