In earlier years, the burial was performed by the Catholic Church as a charitable work and they kept the records in their parish registers. Later private cemeteries began to be created; therefore the Provincial Legislation of São Paulo approved the first statutes for cemeteries in May of 1856. With this regulation in effect the first municipal cemetery was opened in1858 with the name of Cemitério da Consolação. Then an authorized cemetery administration officer was put in charge of recording in a book each burial performed in the cemetery, including personal information of the deceased person and the location of the grave.
 
 
 
It was necessary for cemetery administrators to keep a registration of all the burials including vital information of the deceased and the gravestone place in the cemetery.
