Cemetery Installation Fees
Cemeteries may not prohibit the sale or installation of memorial work by monument dealers. You
have a right to choose who will install your memorial.
Any Cemetery or it's representative limiting your choice of memorial provider or restricts installation of memorial
work purchased from an Monument Dealer by making false statements or creating un reasonable rules or
regulations prohibiting or restricting installations by anyone other than the Cemetery may be in violation
of the Federal Sherman Anti-Trust Act and State Consumer Protection Laws which may result in penalties and fines
of up to $10,000.00 per occurance to the cemetery.
Cemeteries may establish reasonable rules and regulations governing installation of memorials. If the cemetery
does not install your memorial work they are entitled to charge a reasonable fee for inspection based on actual labor for
inspection of the memorial and installation. Once the memorial and installation are inspected and accepted
the Cemetery will become responsibile for memorial. If the memorial is damaged by cemetery maintenance crews or
equipment the cemetery is responsible for the damages.
YOU have the right to choose who will furnish and install your memorial
work. As a Consumer YOU may be entitled to actual and puntitive damages from cemeteries that violate your
right of choice.
