When you need a copy of a Utah death record, keep in mind that you may request the document by mail and that they only are available to the general public if the death occurred more than fifty years ago. The search fee for a death certificate is $16 AND $8 each additional copy (pay by money order or check). The public copies of death certificates are kept at the Utah Division of Archives and Records, and you can access more recent records from the Office of Vital Records and Statistics at the following address:
Utah Dept. of Health
Office of Vital Records and Statistics

If you’re in need of a faster response or want to bypass all of the red tape required by most states, you can choose from one of the many Internet search sites that can quickly find your records and deliver the information to your private web site (usually within minutes of submitting the information). These sites are used by professions that must retrieve vital information on an almost daily basis. Legal professionals and genealogists prefer to have monthly memberships to these sites, but you can use them on a one-time basis only, pay a reasonable fee and receive the data you need. The search engines and databases these Internet sites use are much more powerful than those of most states and they have the ability to cross-reference other states, so if the data isn’t found in one state, it may be found in another. These Internet sites are competitive and professional. Most of the Internet search sites have a policy that if no record is found, you pay nothing. Use these search sites as tools for finding vital records in almost every state and country.
