I went to Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn to visit the grave of my grandparents and mother. All I did was go to the cemetery office and give them the names of my relatives and they looked up the info, which they keep on index cards, and let me copy the info. It listed the names, ages, date of burial, and all who are buried in the grave. The last part was important to me because not all the names were on the headstone. My grandmother had lost 2 babies, and a friend of hers also lost a child that was buried in the same grave. The stone lists the three adults but none of the children.

There was no charge. They never mentioned any fees to me.

Just a note, I encountered this same situation but it was via phone. If I made a request to have them look something up then there was a charge. If I go to the actual cemetery, as with Ann, there would be no charge.
