Vital Records

The Health Director serves as the local registrar for all births, deaths, and fetal deaths occurring in Brunswick County, as well as the issuance of Burial Transit Permits and Disinterment/Re-interment Permits.

Death Certificates

The funeral director, or person acting as such, is responsible for filing a Certificate Of Death with Health Services of the district where the death occurred, within 5 days after death. The Deputy Registrar receives the Certificate of Death from the responsible funeral service, processes the certificate and makes any necessary corrections. A copy of the Certificate of Death is then filed with the Brunswick County Register of Deeds. The original Certificate of Death is filed with the State Vital Records Office.

Burial Transit and Disinterment/Reinterment Permits

The Deputy Registrar issues Burial Transit and Disinterment/Reinterment Permits during regular business hours. There is no fee for these permits.

Birth Certificates

The hospital or medical facility where the birth occurred is responsible for filing a Certificate Of Live Birth electronically with Health Services within 5 days after the birth. The Deputy Registrar receives the Certificate of Live Birth electronically from the hospital where the birth occurred, processes the certificate and makes any necessary corrections. It is then filed electronically with the State Vital Records Office. A copy of the Certificate of Live Birth is filed with the Brunswick County Register of Deeds.

Affidavit of Parentage

An Affidavit of Parentage can be executed at Health Services by appointment only. You will need to provide a government-issued photo ID that is current, along with Social Security numbers for both parents.
