The Vital Statistics Act requires that a funeral director (or person responsible) register deaths through the City of Cambridge Clerk's Division. The Clerk's Division reviews and accepts the appropriate documents and issues a Form 19: Burial Permit and a Form 18: Acknowledgement of Registration of Death. They also forward this information to the Office of the Registrar General or the appropriate Division Registrar, depending on where the death occurred.

The cost for an In Town burial permit is $34.00 and an Out of Town permit is $37.00.
