A Burial Permit is required to bury, cremate or otherwise dispose of the body of a stillborn child.
A cemetery will not consent to a burial, nor a crematorium to a cremation, without the a Burial Permit.
Burial Permits are obtained by the funeral home taking care of the funeral arrangements. The funeral home obtains the Burial Permit from a hospital.
