Burial Permits

If you need to change the location of remains, you will need a new burial permit. A funeral director can arrange this for you, or contact us and we can assist you.

Note: to disinter from a cemetery, only the county where the cemetery is located can issue that permit.

  • $12 fee
  • Burial permit of the deceased, if not available, a death certificate or an affidavit stating the facts may be taken as documentation for issuing the disinter permit
