Florida Electronic Death Records began in late 2011. If the record was filed electronically, it is available at any Vital Statistics office in Florida. If a paper record was filed and the death occurred in Clay County within the past two years, you may obtain a copy from our office. All other Florida deaths must be obtained from the State Office in Jacksonville. Anyone may obtain a certified copy of a death certificate, but only the immediate family may obtain a certified copy with the cause of death. Valid photo I.D. is required when requesting the cause of death. The fee is $10.00 per copy. You may download an application from this web site, and apply in person or by mail.
