Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you saying that the daughters are putting things on the cemetery plots that you purchased?
Do the cemetery records show you as the legal owner of them?
Ok, then this is considered your privately owned property and the daughters have zero legal right to put anything on the plots...you own them. So you are completely within your legal rights to take anything that they put on your cemetery plots and dispose of it in the nearest trash can if you choose to do so as they are trespassing on your privately owned property.
If they call the cops do I just show the cops my deed?
Yes. you can just show them the deed and explain that you have no idea who is trespassing on your property and leaving this trash on your land, but you do not want it there.
Right, but you have no idea who put it there... You can put a picture of me on the site but that doesn't mean that I put it there..
And yes, the thing that they seem to be missing is that you own the plots...not them. They have no legal right to put anything on your property without your permission as that is a trespass to property.
The groundskeeper doesn't have any formal legal training under the law I will bet... So I wouldn't put too much stock on what they say... It is your land and you have the right to determine who and what is on it..
