The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for the States Vital Records and Certificates. When requesting a North Carolina death record you will need specific information about the deceased, such as, the name as it was stated on the certificate, the date of death, the location, city, and or county.

You will also, if you are requesting a certified copy, need to be directly related to the deceased, or a legal representation of one of the family members, and you will need to state this relationship on the application for the death certificate. North Carolinas death records go back as far as 1930, for older records you will have to contact the North Carolina State Archives.

For non-certified copies, which will come on standard printer paper as well as being stamped uncertified so that they will not be able to be used under any circumstances for a legal reason.

The State views death records as public information and therefore will provide an uncertified copy to anyone who is willing to fill out the online request form and pay the applicable fee. You will have to fill out a form for either a certified or uncertified copy of the death certificate and it’s important to provide as much information as you have so that they may more easily find the records you need.
