Victorian Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates

Hate waiting for BMD certificates you have ordered to make their slow way to you in the post?  Wait no more.  Did you know that the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria allows you to download certificates from their Historical Indexes on the spot?  A Historical Image is a scanned image of the original registration record which cannot be used for official purposes. Download purchased images to your computer at a cost of $24 per image.  Historical Death Certificates, which are a certified copy of the original registration record and can be used for official purposes, can still be purchased in hard copy form to be posted to you at a cost of $31 per certificate.

The Historical index has entries relating to:
  • births in Victoria from 1853 to 1914
  • marriages in Victoria from 1853 to 1942
  • deaths in Victoria from 1853 to 1988
  • church baptisms, marriages and burials in Victoria from 1836 to 1853
Each entry includes the:
  • name of the person or people the entry relates to
  • type of event (such as birth, marriage or death)
  • registration year
  • registration number
  • other information relevant to the type of event.
