There are over 800,000 transcripts in this collection of Queensland deaths.

Queensland, located in the northeastern part of the country, is the second largest state in Australia. Compulsory registration for births, marriages, and deaths did not begin in Queensland until 1 March 1856, when Queensland was still part of New South Wales. Deaths may have been registered at a later date from the one the event actually occurred on so be sure to search a range of dates.
