I would assume there was some type of accident/incident and/or an inquest if the police are listed as the informants on a death certificate. There may be information in the newspapers of the time, or details in police reports.

If you are not local to Tasmania, you could try a message to the state library about newspaper information as I think they have newspaper archives on microfilm, and you could also ask the state archives for information on items such as police reports. Either or both of these places may charge for information.
