Death Certificate Information
During an arrangement conference with a decedent's family, one of the items discussed is the number of certified copies of the death certificate that are needed to take care of financial and administrative matters. If the death occurred in Monroe County, we can obtain these copies one business day after the original certificate was filed with the Monroe County Health Department. We can obtain these copies for our client families up to six months after the date of death. Death certificate copies are currently $30/copy.
If you need a death certificate copy after the six month time period has elapsed, please visit the Monroe County Vital Records Department Website at www.monroecounty.gov/health-VitalRecords.php. They are located at 111 Westfall Rd., Room 147, Rochester, NY 14620.
If the death occurred outside of Monroe County, then the death certificate is filed in the locale (county, city, town or village) where the individual passed away. The time frame to obtain these copies as well as the cost per copy varies depending on the locale.
If you should have any questions, please call us at (585) 429-6700.
