Any such person shall endorse upon the permit the date of interment, or other disposition, over his or her signature, and shall return all permits so endorsed to the local registrar of the district where the place of final disposition is located within 10 days from the date of interment or other disposition. He or she shall keep a record of all dead bodies interred or otherwise disposed of on the premises under his or her charge, in each case stating the name of each deceased person, place of death, date of burial or other disposition, and name and address of the funeral director which record shall at all times be open to official inspection. The funeral director, when burying a dead body in a cemetery having no person in charge, shall sign the burial-transit permit, giving the date of burial, and shall write across the face of the permit the words “No person in charge,” and file the permit within 10 days after burial with the local registrar of the district in which the cemetery is located.
