The administration in the Legislative Services Department interacts with members of the Markham Cemetery Board. They look at:

  • The annual budget
  • Maintenance of grounds and stones
  • Fees charged for lots and cornerstones

The Legislative Services Department keeps individual files for each cemetery.
