It is the responsibility of the spouse or person who has full knowledge of the facts surrounding the deceased person’s death to complete a registration of death form. The registration of death form is usually completed at the funeral home when funeral preparations are being made. The funeral home will make sure that original forms are sent to Vital Statistics for processing. The registration of death form is a permanent document and it is very important that it is done completely and correctly. The registration of death form is used to produce death certificates and documents. If corrections are needed an amendment may be requested. If requested before 90 days of the time of death then there is no charge. But if it is after 90 days then there is a $20 government fee that will be applied.
