    Social Circle Cemetery wants to clean headstones and monuments. We will ask next of kin for permission. We do not have next of kin information for approximately 65% in the oldest part of the cemetery. Can we clean the headstones and monuments without permission? Should we ask City Council to give us permission?

    As a paralegal I see a hazard in that some long lost relative, using the “deep pocket” principal IE: who has the most $$$ to answer a suit will decide they have been “harmed”.

    I would consult with the municipality attorney and then gain permission from the City/County.

    As a funeral service professional I have seem families act in strange ways in acting out their grief.

    In the litigious society we live in, better to be safe than sorry
