Death records were not required before 1898, when Utah started requiring that each death be reported to the county clerks. Certain towns and cities in Utah did record death information prior to 1898, but the practice wasn't regulated. Often, death records exist prior to 1898 in the form of cemetery and burial records, private family records, church records and newspaper obituaries.
Between 1898 and 1905, the county clerks were responsible for maintaining death records for their county. After 1905, the Utah Department of Health standardized the death certificate and became responsible for maintaining these records. Also available is a name index covering all Utah counties between 1898 and 1905, which is maintained by the Utah Genealogical Society.
