Copies  of  any Tennessee State death certificates, for the years 1908 - 1912 and 1914 - 1956, may be obtained through the Hamilton County Genealogical Society.

Death certificates after 1956 must be requested from the Tennessee Department of Health Vital Records.

The fee for our service is $8.00 each for a PRINTED COPY delivered by USPS First Class Mail or $6.00 each for a digital image in jpeg format by e-mail.
An exact year of death must be provided. If an exact year is not known, additional years may be searched for a fee of $5.00 per year. We will contact you by e-mail if additional searches are required. If we are unable to locate the death certificate your payment will be retained for the search.

Please provide as much information about the deceased as possible. A date of birth will increase the accuracy of the search. If you do not know the exact date of death, we MUST have the year in which the person died.

We make every attempt to process your request as quickly as possible. Delivery times will vary according number of certificates requested, method of delivery, availability, library hours, etc. Please allow at least seven 7 to 10 days to receive your request.
