In some instances we do not know when a body will be disposed of.
This is often in the case of a repatriation.
BDM will accept ‘NR’ (Not recorded) as a date for disposition.
To do this.
- Go to the ‘Case Entry’ screen
- Click ‘Edit’
- Click on the place of disposition
- A Disposition Box will open. Enter ‘NR’ in the date field.
- Accept this change.
Note: If the date is known but in the future you are able to put a ‘?’ in the date field and enter the actual date in the comments field on the ‘Death Registration’ screen.
Note: The Place of Disposition can be entered as “Sent to Australia for burial”
