Can I get a death certificate from your office?
Death certificates are also issued through county health department offices for deaths which occurred in Missouri, since 1980, of natural causes. If the death you need a certificate for does not meet these qualifications, you may contact the State office of vital records, below. A certificate of death may be needed for probate purposes, to process insurance claims or to buy or sell a piece of property that was wholly or partially owned by someone who is now deceased.
