Viewing Vital Records by Appointment

Our office records and maintains death records in Los Angeles County since 1877.

Certificates and indexes of death records (not exempt from public inspections) may be examined at our Norwalk Headquarters.

In addition to certificates, there are indexes of death available for public inspection as follows: deaths from 1877 to the present

Certificates and indexes may be examined at no charge unless an employee is requested to search and/or retrieve more than five records.

Random searches of the indexes or the certificates are not allowed.

An application is required for each record searched. Information sufficient to identify the requested record must be provided. You will be asked to provide identification.
