Burial permits are issued through the Electronic Death Registration System. Funeral directors will need to sign into the system and generate the Permits. You can do this 24/7, then the death certificate will be processed on the next regular business day.
Once you generate the Burial Permit you are required to pay the $30 burial permit fee. That fee can be paid online through the following this link. Or if you prefer you can pay by cash or check in the Lincoln Town Clerk's Office at 16 Lincoln Road, Lincoln, MA 01773.
