Troubled Cemetery Goes To Auction

Posted On January 20, 2012

(Madison, Ind.) – A southern Indiana cemetery will be sold to the highest bidder. 


The Grandview Memorial Gardens will be dealt next month in a sheriff’s sale, after falling into foreclosure. 


It’s the most recent problem for the cemetery, which has had to exhume bodies because of waterlogged graves and an ownership dispute that is tied up in the courts. 


The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says the cemetery will be auctioned February 23.
