Death Certificates

In Person Request

You may request a certified death certificate from a local registrar at a county office or from the funeral home. If you request the certificate in person, you will be asked to complete and sign an application (PDF) stating that you have tangible interest in the certificate. You will be asked to show identification.

If you do not have a tangible interest you may request a non-certified death certificate (PDF) from our office as well. The fee is $13.

By Mail

To apply for a death certificate by mail, please fill out the application (PDF) and have it notarized, enclose check or money order payable to Crow Wing County Land Services for $13 for a certified copy of the death certificate ($6 for each additional copy of the same certificate); mail to our office, and we'll be happy to fulfill your request.
