Hello. So you are saying that the deed is in your Mother and Father's name. I presume your Father died before your Mother. Therefore, in all likelihood the plot would be in your Mother's name or she would be able to bequeath it to whom she wants. She put in her will your Brother gets it. Therefore, as Executor you would facilitate the transfer of the deed into your Brother's name. If the other beneficiaries object, then they would have to object to the probate of the Will. However, unless the will was not properly executed, or there was undue influence, lack of capacity or fraud, the Will would hold up and as Executor you would transfer the plot to your Brother's name.
Thank you. I understand better the facts now. If the cemetery is the entity rejecting the transfer of the deed due to an incomplete description in the Will, you most likely would need to petition the court to have the court order the transfer. Most likely you would need to hire a local attorney to do the papers. Generally, it would be considered a will construction proceeding, wherein you or your brother would have to argue that your Mother's intent was to transfer the deed. It gets complicated since the cemetery is stating its position and there would be no other way around it without a court order.
