How are deaths verified?
Deaths are verified by viewing the death notice directly from the publishing newspaper or funeral home. There is no fee to newspapers or funeral homes to list this information with us.
Do the notices appear on the same day the newspaper is published?
The information in the daily metropolitan newspapers are added to our site on the same day they are published. Sometimes there are delays receiving the papers and processing can take upto seven days after publication date.
I can't find the death notice on the newspapers website?
Not all newspapers put death notices online and others only for a short period. A Memory Tree uniquely records all death notice information and is able to provide Notice Summaries of all of them.
Why can't A Memory Tree just give me a copy of the death notice?
Copyright Laws in New Zealand are very strict. We can not provide copies of death notices without potentially infringing the authors copyright entitlement. However, we do provide summaries of the notices.
How come death notices appear on some Memory (Remembrance) Pages, but not others?
We only place a death notice on a Memory Page when the funeral home or immediate family send them to us directly.
How far do your records go back?
We have been recording all daily newspaper death notices since December 2006.
How many listings are there on the site?
Each year in New Zealand over 29,000
