Why is this important? A perpetual care cemetery is a cemetery that is regulated by the state as to how it must be maintained and how records are kept. With every lot sale, we must place 15% of the sale into a fund which can be administered by the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State may use the money to bring the cemetery up to required standards if the cemetery is deemed not properly maintained. This also gives families peace of mind that funds will be available for maintenance and upkeep for numerous generations to come.
