Death Certificates

A Certified Death Certificate is necessary before anything can be done.  A death certificate can be obtained through a Funeral Director.  It is a good idea to obtain multiple copies of a death certificate as most agencies require a certified certificate and not a photocopy.

Additional copies of death certificates may also be purchased from the registrar in the municipality where the death occured.

Death certificates purchased in Jefferson County are $10 each, however the costs vary from county to county.
