Customer Question

I recently found out that a VERY distant cousin was allowed to be buried in my Ggrandfather's family plot in NJ. She somehow had the deed in her possession and told the cemetery she was a granddaughter of my Ggrandfather, (the original purchaser of the gravesite). Is there anything that can be done, and if not, how do we keep the rest of her family from being buried there as well, since I gather they are still holding the deed.
