Fetal Death Certificates
Fetal death certificates are processed manually at the funeral home as there is not an electronic version at this time. The Fetal Death Certificate is used when the criteria for a standard death certificate is not met. The information that we must obtain to complete the Fetal Death Certificate is different from a standard death certificate. Please review this information. The cost of a Fetal Death Certificate is $21.00 for the first certified copy and $4.00 for each additional certified copy when ordered at the same time. When the fetal death does not require the filing of a Fetal Death Certificate the parents may, but are not required to, request the preparation of a "Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth". The State of Texas charges $20.00 per copy.
