Vital Records Wants Your Input - Update to Disinter/Reinter Form

Greetings from the State Office of Vital Records,

We are preparing a new application and permit for the disinterment and reinterment of human remains. Once implemented, this application and permit will largely replace the current court order requirement to disinter a body buried in Georgia.

A draft of the new Disinter and Reinter of Human Remains form has been attached for comment purposes only. Please review the form, and send any remarks or suggestions to your Regional Consultant by 2/26/2021.

Instructions, trainings, and more details on the implementation of the new form will be provided after the comment period has ended. Please look for future e-mail announcements from the State Office of Vital Records regarding this matter.

Best Regards,

Christopher JP Harrison
State Registrar and Deputy Director
State Office of Vital Records
Georgia Department of Public Health
