Kenneth C. Turner, Supvr


Turner Funeral Home can obtain death (or birth) records from the State's main archive, the Pennsylvania Division of Vital Records, or you can order them directly at:

Division of Vital Records
PO Box 1528
New Castle, PA 16105

Certificates are $9 each and you must include a self addressed stamped envelope. There is approximately a 3 week wait to process orders.

Certified copies of the death certificate are ordered by Turners for you at the time of death from our local registrar. The cost is $6 each. After the end of that month, they are housed at Vital Records in New Castle and the cost is $9 each. Veterans records are free for up to 10.

Certified copies (not photocopies) are needed for bank accounts, life insurance companies, employee benefits, vehicle titles, real estate transfers, stocks and bonds, and income tax returns.

Turners, with our location in New Castle, now offers an Express Service for those who need copies immediately. The cost is $25 each + postage, and we will obtain the copies you need in one business day (Mon-Fri, 9AM-4PM).

More information is available at the Division of Vital Records or at the Pennsylvania Vital Records Information.
