Are all cemeteries regulated by the State of New York?
No. The Division of Cemeteries and the State Cemetery Board regulate only those nondenominational cemeteries that are incorporated under not-for-profit corporation law. Cemeteries not subject to Department of State jurisdiction include religious, municipal, and private or family cemeteries.
