Before the business and legal issues of the estate can be pursued, it is necessary to obtain certified copies of the death certificate. You can order them from the Funeral Director or directly from the Registrar of Vital Statistics in your area. It is always better to order a few more than what you think you will need. Most agencies will only accept certified death certificates and not photocopies.

In some cases, there may be a need to obtain a certified copy of the death certificate without a cause of death. These certificates are needed to transfer the title on a house, mobile home, and automobile or in some cases for court procedures. You should make this request when ordering the certified copies.

Contact our Funeral Directors today to get the process started. The team at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home & Cremation Centre in Markham are here to help during your time of need.
