Certified Copies of the Death Certificates
Often times, we are asked why do I need Certified Copies of a Death Certificate and How do I go about obtaining these?
You will need a Certified Copy of D/C as notification to various financial institutions and organizations to aid in settling the estate of the decedent. Most require it to be a certified copy with a raised seal.
At the time of death, we will obtain the number of copies you request on your behalf from the local registrar office. The fee for these copies is mandated by the local registrar and does vary accordingly.
Future copies may be obtained from one of two sources. The registrar office where the death occurred, Or you can contact the state directly. For New Jersey, contact the State of New Jersey Bureau of Vital Statistics @ (609) 292-4087.
