Info Required to Order Death Certificate

Before you decide to order a death certificate, you may want to make sure that you have all of the necessary information. For deaths that have occurred within the last 25 years to present, only the immediate family members of the deceased can request a copy. If you are not an immediate family member, you’ll need to provide legal documentation.

Here’s a list of the information you will need to provide when ordering a death certificate in Texas:

  • Decease’s full name
  • Decease’s date of birth and death
  • Decease’s place of birth and death
  • Decease’s Social Security number
  • Decease’s full name of father
  • Decease’s full maiden name of mother
