Birth & Death Certificates

Certified copies of birth certificates of residents born in Norwell, or whose parents were living in Norwell at the time of birth, may be obtained from the Clerk for a fee of $10.00 each.

The same applies to death certificates of any person who dies in Norwell or who dies elsewhere but was a resident of Norwell at the time of death.
