Death Certificates

Each City or Town in Maine records and maintains death records for individuals who died in that municipality or who were a resident of that municipality at the time of death.  If you are not certain of the place of death, you may call the Office of Vital Statistics for the State of Maine in Augusta at 1-888-664-9491.
 
The following is helpful in locating an individual's record:    
  • Name
  • Date of Death
  • Name of Spouse
  • Mother's Maiden Name
  • Father's Name     

Methods for Requesting Death Records:

In Person
Certified copies of death certificates are available during normal business hours (8am to 6:00pm, Monday through Thursday) at our office.  The first copy costs $15.00 and $6.00 for each additional copy of that record.  The person making the request must fill out a request form, provide proof of identity and proof of lineage, if necessary.

By Mail
Death records can be requested in writing through the mail by providing the information listed above on the deceased.  The person requesting the record must include a photocopy of proof of identification and proof of lineage, if necessary.  

Send your request and self-addressed stamped envelope to:
Winslow Town Clerk
114 Benton Avenue
Winslow, Maine  04901

A check payable to the Town of Winslow must accompany your request; the fees are the same as for an in-person request.

Please note that all requests for records are generally processed the same day the request is received.
