Obtaining Death Certificates

There are several options available for obtaining copies of death certificates.

The best option is to contact the city hall or town office of the town where the individual died. The offices in the larger locations such as Bangor, Ellsworth, Blue Hill, and Mount Desert, can print certified copies of the death certificates on the spot.

The next option would be to contact the Maine Department of Health and Human Services at (207) 287-3181 or on-line at www.maine.gov/dhhs/faq.htm#certificates.
