Dear Mac

Enquiries about deceased former servicemen and women

Anyone can request the service records of deceased former service personnel, whether it is for a research project, your family history or your personal interest.

You can request a copy of a deceased person’s service record by writing to us at NZDF Archives.

Please note that if the person concerned died after leaving the services this fact may not be recorded on their file. In such cases you will need to send us some form of evidence that they are deceased. This could be a copy of a death certificate, newspaper death notice, funeral service sheet or photograph of the headstone. It will save time if you send us this information with your initial request.
