Queensland deaths contains the records of more than 871,000 individuals who died in Queensland between 1829 and 1964. Each record consists of a transcript of the original source material. Each transcript will list your ancestor's full name, death date and the names of both parents including mother's maiden name.
Transcripts will also reveal the registration year and registration number. This information can be used to order a death certificate or an image of the original register from the Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. Original certificates will include the full details of the death record, which may include such additional information as place and details of death, occupation, age, and marriage status, to name a few. Please note that there will be an ordering fee for a certificate or image.
Queensland, located in the northeastern part of the country, is the second largest state in Australia. Compulsory registration for births, marriages, and deaths did not begin in Queensland until 1 March 1856, when Queensland was still part of New South Wales. Deaths may have been registered at a later date from the one the event actually occurred on so be sure to search a range of dates.
