Death Registration Information
for Funeral Directors and Staff
It is the responsibility of the State Registrar to maintain a statewide system of vital statistics including the registration of all births and deaths that occur in Minnesota according to Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 144, sections 211 to 227, and Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4601.
Records for all deaths that occur in Minnesota are filed electronically using the Minnesota Registration & Certification (MR&C) System.
This website is dedicated to providing information to funeral directors and other funeral home staff about the death registration process in Minnesota.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a temporary Disposition Permit and may only be used in an emergency when the Minnesota Registration & Certification (MR&C) electronic death registration system has been unavailable for at least 24 hours.
