The Office of Vital Records provides in-person services to funeral establishments by appointment only. Regular business hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
After-hours service request(s) must be submitted through the California Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS). Once the submission has been made, please call our after-hours line at 562.435.6711.
A fee will be charged for services related to death certificate filing on weekends or holidays in the amount of $125.00 per transaction.
While we understand there is little control in most circumstances, we encourage you to submit non-urgent death certificate requests during regular business hours. Fees are due at the time payment is rendered for the requested service(s).
