In Arizona, a funeral home or other similar agency has up to 7 days to submit complete and accurate information regarding a death in our county. Next and in most cases, a death certificate is available approximately 3-5 business days after these events. However, certain circumstances may delay this time frame. Please contact the funeral home or other agency with whom you are communicating about this death event to learn if they have completed their filing.

You are welcome to pay with cash (drop-off only), check or money order made out to Coconino Vital Records, or credit or debit card.
