Helpful information about cremation in Missouri
Missouri law states that a death certificate must be filed with the local registrar within five days and before final disposition of the body. (Missouri Revised Statutes § 193.145.) It is usually the mortuary, cremation organization, or other person in charge of the deceased’s remains that prepares and files the death certificate.
If you need to order copies of a death certificate at a later time, you can contact the local health department or go to Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services. From the DHSS website, you can download an order form or find additional info regarding ordering death certificates over the phone, online, or in person.
In Missouri, when you order a death certificate, you must show identification. If you order records by mail, you must sign your application in front of a notary public.
