Burial Permits

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that the City of Lowell issue a burial permit to transport or bury any resident or non-resident that has passed away within the city limits. Typically, permits are generated in conjunction with area funeral homes.

The $20 fee for a burial permit is now payable on-line at https://www.invoicecloud.com/portal/(S(jbohefqpolhdnthcipz0y5ye))/2/cloudstore.aspx?cs=A30224FE-366D-49A5-B4D1-486F0A80DE95&bg=df4c9b56-182b-4199-b0db-f20392ea18e0&return=Site.aspx%3fG%3d055baa3f-ac74-481f-a9c5-db32d3f1d5ae  

For decedents who are a Veteran, upon completion with the minimum of the Branch of Service, Date of entry and discharge, and the Service number on tab 2A “Veteran Status”, there will be a permit fee of $0.00.  Payment is required if the minimum required information is not provided.
