Cemetery Trustees are responsible for the care and maintenance of public municipal cemeteries in your town or city, and for any private cemeteries the town has acquired. Cemetery Trustees establish the bylaws, prepare a budget every year, prepare the deeds or right to inter (although Cemetery Trustees do not sign the deeds) and maintain the cemeteries. Cemetery Trustees do not hold the principal of donated cemetery and perpetual care trust funds. This responsibility is given to the Trustees of Trust Funds. It is important for Cemetery Trustees to work closely with the Trustees of Trust Funds.
