At the conclusion of a death investigation, the Coroner issues a death certificate, which is the legal document that states the cause and manner of death. This is an extremely important document as it is used to settle criminal and civil legal matters, and insurance benefits for survivors.
Copies of Death Certificates can be obtained from the Tri County Health Department.
The Recording office will only have record of Death Certificates that were recorded as part of a real estate transaction. Any death certificate recorded in our office will have personal information redacted before copies are given and a request form must be completed.
