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

Scope and Content

Indemnification agreements authorize burial in cemetery lots when the person providing authorization is not the owner but the next of kin. They indemnify the city against all costs of disinterment and reburial, attorney fees, or other costs associated with wrongful interment. Almost always the owner is unable to sign the agreement because he or she is deceased. The agreements identify the relevant cemetery lot, name the owner, and provide information about the next of kin who is authorizing burial in the lot.
