Death Certificates Reasons You Might Need More Than One

As your Funeral Provider, we know how important the certified copy of the death certificate is going to be for you. You will realize its importance as you begin doing the business of filing claims and settling the estate. We will make every effort to initiate and forward the original certificate, in an efficient and timely manner, to the attending physician and to other agencies involved.
