Arkansas Death Records

You can find death records in the Arkansas Vital Records department that date back to 1914 and some that even go back as far as 1881 in larger Arkansas communities such as Fort Smith and Little Rock. You’ll pay $10 for a certified copy of a death certificate ($8 for each copy after that). There are no refunds available even if the state doesn’t find the record. Arkansas death records are considered private and may only be obtained by legal representatives of a relative, professional genealogical researches or relatives who can prove their relationship to the deceased. If the death records are older than 50 years, anyone who is related to the deceased can obtain a copy of the death certificate. If you quality to receive the record, you’ll need to provide information such as the date of death and place when the death occurred, the full name of the person, copies of your identification and your reason for requesting the record.
