Cemetery notes and/or description:
Update 5/27/11: Cemetery staff said they would look up burial information for $10.

Update 11/2015- Family members have had positive reception when asking for information on burial plots and have been able to take pictures.

2010: Find A Grave volunteers have attempted to fulfill photo requests at Rosehill (even contacting their management and lawyers) and have been denied. Here are their comments and suggestions for grave marker photo requests:

"After many tries (and trials) we are sorry to report to you that the management of Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago has been unwilling and unable, according to the lawyers of Dignity Corporation/Service Corporation International to honor our requests to photograph your requests for pictures from Rosehill.

After many attempts to come to an agreement to photograph there we contacted the board of their parent corporation. The response that we received was less than desirable. They will only give permission for DIRECT DESCENDANTS to obtain photographs of graves there.

At this point there are over 60 requests for photographs which cannot be filled. We would love to be allowed to photograph these for you. We have been warned that if we are seen photographing unauthorized graves our cameras might be confiscated and we will be asked to leave the cemetery.

Our only suggestion is that you contact the cemetery - requesting that they provide you with the plot cards and ask them to take the pictures for you. We are not sure WHAT they will require for proof of "next of kin".

You may also wish to contact the Service Corporation International if you cannot obtain your requested photos and other information. If they get enough letters they may have to reconsider their policy.
