3 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series contains permits allowing the transport and burial or disposal of human remains. These permits were issued by the state where the individual died and state law required that the cemetery sexton receive such a permit prior to allowing "burial or other disposition of a human body". The sexton was directed to retain these permits. Many of the permits in this series were issued by the Utah State Division of Vital Statistics, but some were issued by other states. The permits typically record such information as the name of the deceased, sex, race, date and place of birth, date and place of death, place of residence, method of disposal, cemetery information, funeral director information, and date of burial.

Arrangement

Chronological by burial date.

This series came from the agency with a mixed arrangement. Earlier records were arranged chronologically, while later records were arranged by time period, thereunder alphabetically by name of the deceased. During processing prior to microfilming, all the records through 2011 were arranged chronologically for consistency and ease of access.
