How do I gain access to a cemetery on private property?
If this is not your family's cemetery and it is not available to public access through an existing road, then we recommend getting permission from the landowner before crossing private property. Not only is this courteous but it also avoids trespassing. However, please be aware that landowners are not required under any state law to grant access to persons who are not heirs or descendants of the persons buried in the cemetery.
