Our office completes only the certification portion of a death certificate, which is then completed by the funeral director who files it. Original copies for insurance and estate purposes are usually provided by the funeral director, but can also be obtained from the Vital Statistics Officer in the municipal jurisdiction of the death location, or by contacting the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services by calling 609-292-4087 or writing to: Vital Statistics P.O. Box 370 Trenton, NJ 08625-0370

Autopsy and toxicology reports are available upon submission of a Records Request Form.
Once we receive your request, it is sent to the county Solicitor's Department who will forward a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) form to you for your signature and return to the Solicitor's Office. Upon receipt of the completed HIPPA form and approval, the requested documents will be mailed to your location. Should the release of these reports jeopardize the integrity of an on-going criminal investigation, the Burlington County Medical Examiner's Office may withhold the reports until completion of that investigation.
