Burial Permits

A burial permit must be accompanied by a death certificate and should correspond with that information.  The cost of a burial permit is $12.00.

If the disposition of human remains is moving from one location to another, then the permit must be re-filed to reflect the new location.  All re-files must have a paper trail.  Burial Permits are numbered and kept in the Vital Records office for 2 years.  Funeral Homes/Mortuaries keep their copy too.
