 Certificate of Death




South Carolina State law required the recording of deaths in 1915.  Death certificates were created to record deaths in South Carolina in compliance with state law and to better serve public health needs. They were also used in connection with the probate of wills and the administration of estates.

Information pertaining to death is reliable; including death, name of the attending physician or attending medical professional, name and address of the funeral home used, and the exact date and place of burial. Other information is dependent upon the reliability of the informant. Copies of Death Certificates can be obtained through writing, from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.
