Off the beaten path you will occasionally run across these in out of the way places. This one looked like it had some reasonably recent headstones in it despite looking horribly rundown. Some you run across have just been abandoned to time and the elements. The date on the top says 1908. There are no signs of civilization anywhere nearby.
I used to work in a financial management firm that had some religious organizations as clients. A particular diocese had a large number of smaller segregated funds within their portfolio that they could not touch. These particular funds were cemetary funds. They were set up to look after the care and maintenance of cemetaries. Some of the sites that they looked after were in the middle of nowhere, the church and settlement that was once there disappeared over time however they were obligated to still look after the burial site. There were times it was a bit of a chore to find someone to hire to clean up the site and keep it presentable, mainly because some were so out of the way. They did honour their obligations and I found it somehow reassuring that these people were looked after long after they were gone. Personally I am opting for the cremation route and no service.
There is a bit of a misconception about some religious organizations being rich. Some may have a lot of money, and largely is it money that they cannot use or access. It has been spoken for and assigned a certain purpose. All of the individual segregated restricted funds can look like a lot of money. I would like to think someone looks after this spot, it certainly could use some care.
