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.  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.​
