In New Zealand, it is a legal requirement that all deaths must be registered with the Department of Internal Affairs, Births, Deaths and Marriages Division.
To provide the necessary information to us you may choose to fill out the Death Registration Form now. Download it to your computer by clicking the link below.
Print the form, fill it out as comprehensively as you can, then send it to us by email, regular post, or by dropping it off at our premises.
There is a lot of information that is required by the government, some of it is quite private. Rest assured that we treat your personal information with the utmost care. Maintaining your privacy in all of our dealings is a top priority.
Taking care of this important task before you die will save your loved one’s the anguish of having to do it later. They may not know all of the required information, or may have to go to great lengths to find it out, especially if you’ve had a previous marriage, or had children from a previous partner.
