Death Certificates

Before the business and legal issues of the estate can be pursued, it will be necessary to obtain certified copies of the death certificate. You can order them from our funeral home or directly from the Division of Vital Records in the state where the death occurred. Most agencies will only accept certified death certificates and not photocopies.

We recommend that you order a few more than you think you may need.  People are often surprised by how many death certificates they actually need. Some common circumstances that require a death certificate are deed transfers, life insurance policies, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, pensions, canceling utilities or anything else on which the deceased's name appears.
