Death records are issued by the Alabama Department of Public Health for the entire state. You can also look into requesting from individual county clerks, but, any records outside of that county are not going to be available. Death certificates go back to 1908, however, records within the past 25 years are deemed confidential in the state of Alabama. Confidential records are available to the mother, father, spouse, children and siblings of the person named on the death certificate. Grandchildren showing entitlement, estate representative or information listed on the certificate can also be qualified.
