Upon selecting the best funeral home for your loved one, you’ll need to make sure you have the right number of death certificates. Why isn’t one document copy enough? There are tasks related to funeral arrangements and death that require certified copies of the death certificate.
These tasks include:
The best funeral home would advise ordering 10 to 15 certified copies of the death certificate. You can order these through the funeral director. If the deceased had a very large estate, more copies are recommended. If needed, you can order additional copies at a later date from the office of Vital Records.
Should you decide to order death certificate copies yourself, here’s what you’ll need to do so:
Here in Arizona, you can apply for these copies by mail at the Office of Vital Records, Arizona Department of Health Services, P.O. Box 3887, Phoenix AZ, 85007, or in person at the Office of Vital Records, 1818 W. Adams, Phoenix AZ 85007. Note – same-day service for obtaining copies of the death certificate is not available.
