Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Planning on Filing a Complaint Regarding an Ohio Cemetery? The Key Word to Remember is "Registered"!

Sharing scanned images of the pamphlet: 

"Ohio Cemeteries A Consumer Guide"
 with additional notations added in red to denote how important the word "Registered" is when it comes to deciding to file a complaint about a cemetery to the Ohio Cemetery Dispute Resolution Commission.  

If a cemetery is Unregistered, then the Ohio Cemetery Dispute Resolution Commission will not accept, nor act upon, complaints made against those responsible for the cemetery.  


I received this reply in 2013 that still applies today.:
