Cemetery Minutes 6-1-10

Sarto contacted all Funeral Directors to get their email addresses to send them a copy of the “Acknowledgement, Agreement and Release” form which is to be completed by the next of kin and sent to the Cemetery Sexton before any grave site can be opened.

The cremated remains of Walter E. Woods who died on 1-31-10 were buried in Section IV (4) Lot #114,
Plot 3.
Ida Albrecht who died on 4-25-10 was buried in Section IV (4) Lot #92B, Plot 2.

We received a phone call from Nancy Dunker of a law firm in Manchester, CT requesting the transfer/sale of a plot owned by Ida Albrecht.  Sarto called Ms. Dunker and informed her that we could only transfer the Deed ownership.  She will send a copy of the Original Deed so it can be transferred to Ida Albrecht’s daughter.
