Shelby County Coroner’s Office 

Mission Statement 

The Shelby County Coroner’s Office serves as a bridge between the living and the deceased.  It is our responsibility to give the deceased a voice in the manner of their passing.  The Coroner’s Office strives to investigate all deaths with professionalism, integrity, and efficiency.  Professionalism is used in each and every aspect of the investigation process.  Integrity is instilled in every step of the investigation in your loved one’s death.  As the death is researched and investigated, efficiency is called upon for the death certificate to be completed as quickly as possible.  These three cornerstones guide our office in treating all deceased cases with respect, equal treatment, and compassion. ​
