Ordering Death Certificates Online

For fast, affordable service, order Texas death certificates through Texas.gov, the official eGovernment site for the State of Texas.

The current processing time for Texas.gov orders is 20–25 business days.

 Certificates for deaths within the past 25 years are considered protected records.

Texas residents can order records of immediate family members.  See Section 181.(13) of the Texas Administrative Code for what qualifies as an immediate family member.

Non-Texas residents must be:

  • the surviving spouse of the deceased;
  • the parent of the deceased; or
  • the funeral director of the funeral home on record.
