Welcome to the website of the Burlington County Medical Examiner Office. We recognize that we are often dealing with bereaved family members at the most trying time of their lives, and we endeavor to be as supportive and least intrusive as we can in completing the investigations that we are mandated to perform. It is our intent to secure decedents’ remains and such personal property as is on them, identify them, and locate and inform the next of kin as soon as we are able to in all cases. In certain cases this may take several weeks. The staff of the Burlington County Medical Examiner Office are here to help and will answer your questions as best as they can. Some of the more frequent queries we receive are addressed in the “We’re here to help” section of this web site.
