How can I get copies of a death certificate?
The coroner's office maintains a file on each case, which includes a non-certified copy of each death certificate. Certified copies of death certificates can be requested from the funeral home at the time of the funeral arrangements. Murray County Probate Court maintains death certificates of all deaths that occur in Murray County, and certified copies can be obtained from there at any time. The Georgia Department of Community Health Office of Vital Records may also be able to provide certified copies. Their phone number is (404) 679-4702.
