Vital Records


The Town Clerk can provide certified copies of all birth, death and marriage records that are on file with the Town.  The Massachusetts State Registry of Vital Statistics has records for ALL Towns / Cities in Massachusetts. 

The Town of Stoughton will only have the following Vital Statistic Records on file:

  • Birth records:  Anyone born in Stoughton or whose parents were living in Stoughton at the time of the birth.  In some cases, picture identification may be required to obtain a certified copy of the record.
  • Marriage records:  Any couple who filed their intentions to be married in the Town of Stoughton. Please note that even if the marriage took place in Stoughton, we will not have the record unless the marriage intentions were filed here.
  • ​Death records:  Any death within the Town of Stougton or if the deceased was a resident of the Town of Stoughton at the time of death.

Certified copies of birth, marriage, or death certificates cost $10.00 for each copy.

You can request certified copies of these records in person, or by mail.
