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

Scope and Content

This series contains records 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. Most of the earlier permits in this series were issued by the Utah State Division of Vital Statistics, but some were issued by other states. In 1977 the law changed so that permits were only required if remains were being transported into or out of the state (Laws of Utah,1977, Ch.105, Sections 4 and 5), so beginning in 1978 there are only permits for individuals who died outside of Utah. 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.
