Revised Certificate of Death

Beginning January 1, 2012, the Pennsylvania Department of Health will be implementing a revised Certificate of Death, Form H105-143.

A few general reminders in achieving a complete and accurate death certificate:

  • When photocopying blank forms or utilizing software to print the certificates, please keep in mind that the paper must be legal size.
  • Please refrain from hole-punching the certificate as this hampers the numbering process.
  • Always remember to use BLACK permanent ink.  No gel pens or erasable ink.
  • After January 1, 2012, old certificates will not be accepted.
