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.

In Missouri copies may be obtained at any area Health Department once they have been filed. Certified copies at this time are $13.00 for the first copy and $10.00 for each additional one purchased at the same time.
