Notices remain in the main search for 28 days, and then they are moved to the archive section, where they can be searched. The archive commences mid January 2006. If the notice is not contained in their archive it is because neither the Funeral Director or the family have placed a notice for this person on obits.com.au. You can search the site for free but there is a cost to submit a notice unless you have booked and paid for a listing through your funeral director. Entries may also include photos.
