Certified Copies of the Death Certificate

Information on obtaining copies of the death certificate can be found here. Please note: Funeral Directors must get the signed death certificate from the doctor first. When it is completed with the information collected from the family, it will be filed with the county. At that point it is available for copies. This takes approximately three days.
