Information for Funeral Homes

The OCME maintains a web for funeral homes to check on the status of cases, look at and correct death certificates, and arrange for the release of decedents. A release authorization form is no longer necessary. For information about the OCME's funeral home web portal, or to register for an account, contact

​In most cases, decedents can be released the day after they are transferred to the OCME. Decedents are released between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. seven days a week.​
