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

Scope and Content

This series contains records of individuals buried in the cemetery. They include primarily permits for the transit, burial, and disinterment of remains. The records also include information forms from mortuaries and copies of some Cemetery Monthly Reports of Deaths submitted to the Utah State Division of Health. The records were used by the cemetery as part of the legal requirements to document the disposition of human remains. Prior to 1977 Utah law required a permit for the disposition of all human remains. After 1977 permits were only required if remains were being transported in or out of the state. The records contain such information as the name of the deceased, date and place of birth, date and place of death, place of residence, age at death, mortuary handling the remains, and the burial date. The mortuary information forms may also include the names of spouses and parents
