How to Find Australian Death and Funeral Notices Online

Looking for Australian death and funeral notices? Here's how to find them online

Desk with a variety of technological devices

Whether you're searching for death or funeral notices, the internet can offer the fastest and easiest tool to find the key information you're looking for.

Though traditionally, funeral notices were posted in classified sections of local newspapers, at houses of worship, cemeteries or funeral homes, it’s now fastest to search death and funeral notices online. And with an increasing number of local and regional newspapers shutting down, many such notices are beginning to modernise their services in this way.

We’ve listed several easy-to-use Australian websites, listing death notices alongside funeral information:

Using the websites is free and makes it easy for people to search via specific date ranges, State or Territory, and city. Depending on the site, you can also leave condolences, send flowers or other tributes.

If for any reason you’re looking for an older death notice, you can try the Ryerson Index, a free searchable index of Australian death notices in newspapers dating all the way back to 1803.
