Births, deaths and marriages

Consumer and Business Services (CBS) records significant life events such as births, deaths and marriages for people living in South Australia.

Certificates issued by CBS can be used to prove a person’s identity. Records are often used to research family history and certificates can be ordered to mark important dates and events in people's lives.

 You can access Births, Deaths and Marriages information, register a life event or order certificates on SA.GOV.AU
