Order a certified copy of a death certificate online by following the steps below. The cost is $15 for the first copy, and $5 for each additional copy of the same record after that. Online orders typically take one to two business days to process and mail out (you should receive your record 5 to 10 business days after ordering if you choose free standard shipping). There is no additional fee for using the Macomb County Clerk online order service. Death certificates are public records and you need not show identification in order to purchase a certified copy.
STEP ONE: Verify that the death record you are ordering is on file in Macomb County by clicking the link below (if you cannot find the record in our online index, the individual's death record is either on file in another county, or the funeral home has not yet filed their death certificate with the Clerk's Office). If you are unsure of the county where the individual died, call the State of Michigan Vital Records Office at 517-335-8666:
