We have records of deaths occurring in Hennepin County, as well as any deaths occurring in the State of Minnesota from 1997-present. You can request a certified copy at any of our service center locations. You may also request a certified copy by mail or fax, but your submitted request must be notarized.
If the death occurred outside Hennepin County before 1997, you must contact the county where the death occurred.
To get a certified death certificate you must have tangible interest. Uncertified copies are also available, but are not accepted for legal purposes.
