"No body can be disinterred in Alabama until application to disinter has been made and permission granted by the health authority of the county in which the body lies" (Rules and Regulations Governing the Disposition, Transportation, and Disinterment of Dead Human Bodies, 20 August 1947, State Board of Health Minutes). To obtain permission for disinterring a body, the party responsible for the body is required to complete and file a disinterment permit with the County Health Officer of the county in which the body is buried. If permission is granted, the official signs the form and give a copy of the form to the person in charge, while keeping the original for the department's files. Each permit documents the body that is being moved, where it is located, where it will be relocated, and who is responsible for the move. The bottom of the form contains a statement authorizing the disinterment, which is signed and dated by the county health officer

Indemnification agreements authorize burial in cemetery lots when the person providing authorization is not the owner but the next of kin. They indemnify the city against all costs of disinterment and reburial, attorney fees, or other costs associated with wrongful interment. Almost always the owner is unable to sign the agreement because he or she is deceased. The agreements identify the relevant cemetery lot, name the owner, and provide information about the next of kin who is authorizing burial in the lot
