This link had been available on the funeral.ohio.gov website:
It had been linked from the last listed category entitled:

I was so pleased to see this information available again available online and hope the Funeral.Ohio.gov restores the link to their website.  The information provides a valuable resource for so many seeking more answers pertaining to their problems relating to their cemeteries of concern.
