Death Records Index

The simplest way to get started, is to search through the death records index. Provide as much information as possible in the search criteria (at least the firstname and surname). You can narrow down your search by trying to match the year the person died with the year listed in the index. Allow a few years either side, as some records may not match to the exact year.

Once you have found a record that matches, click on the link to download the digital image of the death notice. Not all images are immediately available. If the image is not available, then it can be requested. You will be notified by email once the image has been placed on the site for download.

Please note: does not currently offer or collect documents from the Department of Home Affairs. To request copies of documents not available on goto

In Memory Of

Josh Ethan Kinsella Bassett
Born: 30 Apr 2017
Died: 21 May 2017
South Africa
Our dearest little Angel. You are dearly missed by your Mommy Daddy your brothers. And the rest of the family. I missed you dearly everyday. You were only with us for 21 days of life. And the lord Jesus Christ called upon your name.
There is no day passes by that I don't think of you my little angel.
Rest well My baby boy Josh. I'm not sure how long it will take for me to heal from this void. You would have been 5 year old toddler running around. But I know you are with us in spirit. May your soul rest in eternal Peace. Mommy, Daddy and Brothers miss you dearly.
