Making it official

Once chosen as funeral directors, we’ll register the death with the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages. This will make an official record of the death and provide you with a certified copy of the Death Certificate, essential when dealing with any related legal, financial or estate matters.

The Collier Trenerry team will lead you through this procedure. We will order the Death Certificate, have it securely mailed to Collier Trenerry and then check for spelling and information correctness and forward it onto you or your solicitor for estate purposes.
