Trenton, GA asked in Consumer Law for Georgia

Q: Can I get a refund on a down payment made for a head stone at a unmarked grave in a Colorado cemetery.

The close family of the man buried there does not want a stone to mark his grave. My wife did not know that at the time and did not know how to contact any close relatives still living. Her mother was the one who wanted the stone marker and it was to be a gift to her.

A: You would need to discuss the viability of any claim against a Colorado cemetery or grave marker retailer with an attorney licensed on Colorado.

A: This is really a question for the cemetery to answer, or whatever company you ordered the marker from. See what their policy is. If they don’t provide refunds, you may be able to seek assistance from your credit card company (if you used a credit card), or by hiring an attorney. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
