If you need to remove the remains of a deceased person from the place of interment (for cremation, or to bury in a new location for example), disinter/reinter permits are required.

Disinter/reinter permits are required for your protection. Some viruses and diseases may remain active for decades after the death of an individual. Vital Statistics reviews applications and cause of death to ensure that restrictions are closely followed. For more information, see Service Alberta, Disinter - Reinter Permits.

Application to Cemetery to Perform Disinterment

When permission has been obtained from the Province to perform the disinterment, an application and payment to the cemetery is also required before the disinterment can occur. Please contact the cemetery office at 780-442-0974, or a funeral home for detailed instructions.

Disinterment of Cremated Remains

Although a disinterment permit is not required from the Provincial Government for cremated remains, a cemetery application and fee are still required.

In order to maintain accurate burial records and comply with the Alberta Cemeteries Act and the City of Edmonton Parkland Bylaw, it is essential that the information captured by the application and the removal of the remains be completed by City of Edmonton Cemeteries Staff.

The removal of any remains without the proper authority can result in legal action.
