Death Record Application

Death records may be requested by the immediate family:  parents of deceased, siblings of the deceased, child or surviving spouse (if listed on death certificate).

Applicants should bring a completed application along with proper ID and the appropriate fee. Proof of relationship to the decedent will be required by all immediate family members with the exception of the surviving spouse. Proof of a legal/medical need is required for all applicants requesting death records for that purpose.

For parents or surviving spouse, acceptable forms of ID include government-issued identification or passport. For a child or sibling, acceptable types of relationship include a birth certificate or long form marriage record with government-issued ID.

There is a $10 fee per certified copy of a death certificate. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, money order, local check or credit card ($1.50 service charge when paying in person). Please make checks or money orders payable to Hempstead Town Clerk.
