How to Obtain Nevada Death Certificates

Statewide vital records registration for Nevada began in 1911. Though some records exist prior to that time, they are kept within the county recorder's office rather than at the Section of Vital Statistics. There is no statewide index for records prior to 1911, and the index beginning in 1911 has restricted access.

For birth and death records after 1911 and marriage records after 1969, write:

State of Nevada Health Division Bureau of Health Planning and Statistics Office of Vital Records and Statistics
505 E. King Street, Room 102
Carson City, NV 89701-4749
Tel: 775-684-4242

For prior records, contact the clerk of the county in question.
