Cemetery Lot Ownership in the City of Warrenton Cemetery.
In order to ensure the wishes of those who purchased plots in the cemetery are honored, necessary guidelines are in place regarding who has the authority over the determination of who is interred into the each lot in the cemetery plot.
City Code Section 145.140 (F) states that “Interment of a body other than the documented owner of the cemetery lot or person previously designated by the documented owner shall require written consent for such burial from the plot owner.” Simply stated, this means that in order for a person to be interred in a lot in the City cemetery, they must be the owner of the lot or have a lot that was previously specifically reserved in their name.
If this documentation does not exist and the original owner is deceased, then proof of ownership will be required for the interment. This can be a daunting task at a very difficult time. This situation can be avoided by contacting the City Clerk. The City Clerk will ensure the record reflects each lot in a family plot is designated for a specific person or a designee responsible for lot allocations must be on record for any unassigned lots.
