Cumberland Co., NC Research
The Cumberland Co., NC, Register of Deeds will provide uncertified copies of marriage, death, and birth certificates for only 25 cents a copy. I just received five copies of uncertified death certificates. I sent the Register of Deeds Office a written request with the required information and $1.25, and less than a week later I received the death certificates.
This is especially exciting because I now have a death certificate for my great great grandfather who was born in 1832. I always assumed he died before North Carolina started keeping official records in 1913. I tracked him in the census and found he died in 1918 at 86 years of age. Thanks to this death certificate, I now know who his parents were and that they were his neighbors in the 1870 census.
I don't think there is an on-line request form but I have included the web address of the Cumberland County Register of Deeds so that Cumberland County researchers can get all the information they need as well as the mailing address.
