Without a specific devise in a will, burial rights in family lots pass from one generation to the next in accordance with the laws of New York State. If you are a direct descendent of a lot owner, you may have a right of burial in the lot. To file an affidavit of heirship, you will be asked to provide the names, addresses, marital statuses, and spouses (if married) of surviving heirs. Contact info@green-wood.com with the lot and section number in the subject line. You will be asked to provide this information for the form of affidavit to adjust title to the lot. The Cemetery will prepare the form of affidavit for your signature. Download this information sheet to learn more.
