Birth, Death & Marriage Information

You first need to confirm your record is on file in Danvers.  Birth records are held in the city/town of birth and the city/town the parents lived at the time of birth.  If you have any question, please contact the Clerk’s Office via email at or 978 -777-0001 x3053 or x3051 to verify. 

Any refund for incorrect orders can take up to 30 days.


$10.00 - per certified copy

You may obtain a certified copy of a birth certificate by ordering online, by visiting the Office of the Town Clerk during normal business hours or by mailing your request along with the $10 fee and a self-addressed stamped envelope to Town Clerk, Danvers Town Hall, 1 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923.

Required Identification

A record is not accessible to the general public if the parents were unmarried at the time the child was born (and have not since married and amended the birth record) or if the father's name does not appear on the record. When this is true, only the mother, father (if listed), or child may request a certificate; identification will be required. Identification is not required for other records.
