Burial Permits for Disinterment

Contact the County Vital Records office in the county where the remains or cremains are legally interred. This can be determined by looking at the burial permit that is with the remains now.

If the cremains/remains are legally interred in Sacramento County, you will need to contact:

Sacramento County Vital Records
7001 East Parkway, Suite 650 | Map
Sacramento, CA 95823
(916) 875-5345

We will ask you to complete a one page form and collect a fee of $12.00. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes. 

Please bring a copy of the old burial permit or certified copy of the death certificate, as well as the name and address of the new place of disposition with you when you visit our office to obtain the new permit.
