Save Our Cemeteries does not own or operate any of the cemeteries in New Orleans. It’s a bit of a complicated issue. Restoration and preservation work in cemeteries frequently poses problems dealing with such things as tomb ownership and other legal issues. We are constantly seeking funding and grants to perform tomb restorations, it’s a huge job to do. We are actively trying to save every tomb that we can. SOC has completed millions of dollars worth of capital improvements in the cemeteries over the years.
← I see tombs in danger of collapsing. Why aren’t you doing anything about it?
