Historical South Australian Deaths

1836 to 1855+

surname * given name

Enter the deceased person's name into the boxes. One given name or first initial is optional. One wildcard may be included in the surname.

Notes

The place is usually the last residence, which may not be the death place. If no place is recorded, the registration district may be abbreviated within brackets to give an indication of location. Adelaide is often abbreviated to Ade.

Most of the death records prior to civil registration are from church and cemetery burial registers and headstone inscriptions. If no death date was given, the burial date is used. The burial place is often included.

Married women's maiden names have sometimes been determined.

If the death you require is not in this database, check our directory of other bmd resources.
