Oversight

A 2002 state law requires the owners of actively-used cemeteries and burial plots to register with the Alabama Department of Insurance and to establish an endowment care fund with a percentage of revenues generated from the sale of plots and mausoleum and columbarium spaces.

In 2017 state legislators Juandalynn Givan, Mary Moore and Louise Alexander sponsored a bill to create a Jefferson County Cemetery Board, a volunteer group that would hear complaints of negligent management and neglect and be empowered to impose fines or declare properties a public nuisance. The bill was signed into law by Governor Kay Ivey. The first members were appointed to the board in February 2018.
