Helpful information about cremation in North Dakota
North Dakota law requires that a funeral director file a death certificate with the state registrar within three days of assuming custody of the deceased's body. (North Dakota Century Code § 23-02.1-19.) The person filing the death certificate should be able to order you copies at the time of filing.
If you need copies of the death certificate at later time, visit the website of the North Dakota Department of Health. From the DOH website, you can find instructions for ordering death certificates by mail, fax, online, or in person.
