Death Certificates

Vital Statistics

Death certificates are processed in the Vital Statistics section of the Clerk’s office. The Vital Statistics office maintains and records all deaths that occur in Howell, usually sent to us via the State Registrar’s electronic death registration system (EDRS). Funeral homes and any authority sanctioned by the State Registrar’s office may send death certificates to our office for processing.


All vital statistics are extremely confidential and anyone requesting a document must adhere to State requirements to obtain such with proper identification and proof of relationship. We process all vital statistics events that occur in Howell Township including births, marriages, and deaths.
