What do you do if you visit a family member’s gravesite, crypt or other cemetery property, and it is not maintained? For example, there is moss or mildew growing on the monument, grass is not manicured, etc.
Review the deed to the cemetery property to see what perpetual care should be provided by the cemetery. The cemetery should be performing the care it agreed to in the purchase contract, and if they are not, this should be brought to the attention of cemetery personnel. If the deed is not available to you or if perpetual care is not discussed in the contract, then talk the problem over with cemetery management.
If you do not get satisfaction there, you could try contacting your local media (TV, newspaper), so perhaps you can get attention drawn to the situation.
Has anyone encountered this problem, and how did you solve it? Please share your experience and suggestions.
