A certified copy of the death certificate is available through the health department of the county where the death occurred. These are required for insurances, removing the deceased name from titles, and other legal purposes. The funeral home will assist in getting them for you at the time of death. For additional ones you can always contact the vital records office in the county where death occurred. Your attorney can help decide how many will be needed.
Lower Valley Memorial Gardens Funeral Home does not charge a fee for obtaining this document for you; it is part of our service to you, our family. The only charge to you is what the State charges us, which is currently $20 each in the State of Washington.
