What is in this Collection?

In 1889, the City of Saint John Board of Health wanted to detect and control contagious diseases and issued an order that required a permit for anyone that was buried in the city. Burial permits from the City of Saint John Board of Health were issued until 1919. The burial permits were for anyone who died in the city of Saint John. They were also for any citizens who were out of town when they died, or for anybody that died passing through the city for burial elsewhere.
