A Certified Death Certificate is necessary before anything can be done. A death certificate can be obtained through Ransdell Funeral Chapel. It is a good idea to obtain multiple copies of a death certificate as most agencies require a certified certificate and not a photocopy. Currently, the cost is $6.00 per certified copy.
