The Cemetery Industry is Big Business, with All the Attendant Problems
It’s painful enough to bury a loved one, but to find out that their remains have been mishandled or abused by those you entrusted with their care can make you feel indignant, violated, and betrayed—and rightfully so. Unfortunately, instances of Cemetery Desecration are not uncommon, so if you suspect that your loved one’s remains have been mishandled in any way, it’s crucial that you contact attorneys who will thoroughly investigate the circumstances and set out to pursue corrective measures immediately.
Cemeteries were once primarily “mom and pop” operations, and most of the families who oversaw those cemeteries took great personal pride and care in the way that burials and ongoing care of the cemetery grounds were handled. Though perhaps not all of them held to such a high standard, most did; but now, the instances of abuse have become more pervasive as large, nameless, faceless corporations and their numerous employees have taken over the industry. The funeral and cemetery industry is big business, commanding billions of dollars every year, and as often happens with large corporations, personal service and dedication to clients can give way to amassing larger and larger profits. Sadly, the result is that families may find that their loved ones’ remains are not cared for in a way befitting the respect and dignity that they deserve.
