What if I don't know the middle
name for one or both of the
people on the death record?
It’s extremely important that you give us the most accurate information because if Texas Vital Records can’t find the death record in their database because of incomplete or wrong information we still get our full fees for doing the expedited filing application for you.
With that said some people don’t legally have middle names and Texas Vital Statistics does not require a middle name to be submitted on the application search form or to issue a new Texas death certificate replacement.
We’ve helped many people get new Texas death certificates that never listed either the mother’s or father’s middle name.
