The law requires doctors and funeral directors to notify the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages Victoria (BDM) of deaths.
In the case of a reportable death, the Coroner must notify BDM as soon as practicable after being notified by the doctor.
Deaths are counted in the month we register them. The deaths may not have occurred in that same month.
