- New York is one of a handful of states where it is illegal to have a for-profit cemetery; all cemeteries must be run as non-profit organizations;
- New York does not allow a surcharge for winter burials; and
- you can hold fundraisers but they can't include games of chance (i.e., raffles).
One interesting note on the main page would be of interest to genealogists and fellow Graveyard Rabbits:
"Have an interested person write an historical article for publication about your cemetery. Include the fact that the cemetery is organized as a Not- for- Profit Cemetery Corporation and is dependent on volunteers (lot owners) for service on the Board of Directors and in the cemetery for cleanup; and, if applicable, ask for donations."
